I am trying to work on a shelf I am building, and I am fairly new to Inventor and have watched a few hours worth of tutorials. I use 3ds max heavily and was able to make this angle with no problem. Take a look at the images and see if maybe this can't be done in inventor.
I tried a 3d sketch, but cant get that to extrude. thanks for any insight!
Welcomet to the forum.
What Inventor version? It always helps to state this when you have a problem - as Inventor is not backwards compatible it will only frustrate someone trying to help if they created a file in 2014 and then you admit you're on 2013 and can't open it...
As for the problem...
If I'm right in thinking, you want a sloped face from the long straight edge to the long kinked edge? To me, an obvious solution is to loft (as a surface) the long straight edge to the long kinked edge, using the 2 short edges and the middle line in the 3d sketch as rails. You could then sculpt this surface to make it all a solid. I think you may need to use surfaces as I don't think you can use edges with solid lofts (not 100% sure though). If you said you're on 2014 then I would have created an example file
