Getting started with Autodesk Inventor and a quick explanation on the different options in creating a new file. Once Inventor is open, there are the typical options of starting a new project or opening an existing one. This is an explanation of the “Create New File” popup after one clicks the “New” button. There are additional options for templates, once you open the “en-US” folder on the left, but the standard templates will probably cover the majority of your needs. There are even options of making your own templates as well.
