I have bee struggling with wikihelp:
I chose 2013 > Help > Tutorials > Introduction to Direct Modelling > Create Promitive Features.
Having created a new doc. as instructed, I was told:
"2 On the Home tab of the ribbon, click on the drop-down arrow under Box and select Cylinder." There is no Cylinder under "Box", just a box. Instead, I clicked on the next item, "Cylinder", and chose Cylinder from its drop down menu and (at item 3) managed to increase its diameter."
I have got to item 5 which is shown in the attachemnt to this post (below). It does not reflect what is on the window of the document and I have stopped in frustration. There is no yellow arrow or a red sphere.
The tutorial is under the heading "2013" and that is the version of Inventor Fusion that I am using. Has this software got bugs, is the tutorial wrong (in which case why is it offered?) Is there a set of correct tutorials available?
Any help appreciated.
To help me understand what you are seeing, can you post a screen capture of what you have after steps 1-4?
I have been looking at a video at:
called "Primitive box". Its ribbon does not look like mine and it shows the yellow arrow and colourd sphere that I do not see. Please see the two screenshots below.
Have I got the correct software please?
You are using Inventor Fusion for Mac.
The tutorials you are using are for Inventor Fusion 2013 which is a different program, that's why everything looks different and acts a little different.
The Help for Fusion for Mac is stored on your machine. Go to the menu bar, click Help, and then select Help from the dropdown menu.
Thanks. I think that the confusion is caused by so many Autodesk programs having almost the same names, and by users referring to them often by, for example, "Fusion".
Try using Modify > Tweak Faces, select the face or faces of the hole and enter a delta value.
