3. Create a new file


Let’s get hands-on! Start Inventor and follow along. You can’t learn CAD unless you actually do CAD!

If you have two monitors, you might want to open the course in the browser on one monitor and have Inventor on the other monitor.

If you only have one monitor, you might want to share the screen between the video and Inventor. You can also watch the videos on a different device.

Topics covered in this lesson:

  • How to create a new parts file (.ipt).
  • The importance of regularly saving your work.
  • The importance of choosing a logical file name when you create the file.
