Just a Tip or Two - A Short Blog

“Of all the things which wisdom acquires to produce the blessedness of the complete life far the greatest is the possession of Friendship.”

Today I had a hectic weekend, including attending my Uncle's 80th birthday.  To say the least, a worthy cause to skip blogging.  So tonight's blog is pushed back a little later in the week, but it is coming! 

Until then, here's three tips that I've uploaded to my Twitter account over the last few weeks!

Tip 1:  When working in a model (*.ipt) file in Inventor 2011, click where indicated to change the dimension display.  Inventor 2011 even lets you choose fractions!

Get fractions too!

 Tip 2: In an Inventor 2011 drawing, use 'Change Model Reference' to make your model reference a different drawing

Change the model reference here!
Tip 3: Do you want a work plane, work axis, or work point to remain in the command (so you can place more of the same), instead of cancelling after you place the first work feature?  While in the command, right click, and choose 'repeat command'.

Right click while in your work feature command and check 'repeat command;

That's it for now.  But I should be able to get something up by Wednesday!

Happy Inventing!
