You should have started a new thread on this, and perhaps on their user forum (what happened - couldn't anyone on that forum answer your question?
Attach your SolidWorks file here.  Indicate which "surfaces" you need as stl.

I used Fusion to delete a face from a part and saved it as an STL.

 

 It comes with Inventor 2012, or you can download it from Labs.

Is it available now? I mean can you save only a surface as STL in Inventor 2012?

Yes, it is available now.  http://labs.autodesk.com
You can save a surface body as stl file in Inventor Fusion.

 

No, you cannot save a surface body as stl file in Autodesk Inventor.
