I am making a design on inventor 2013 for a collegue who does not know how to use the inventor.
I want to make the solid and then set something up that allows the user to change a few of the parameters of the solid in a very user friendly way (i.e. a box that says "cylinder radius" and has an input box so the user can enter a value).
Does anyone have any ideas of where I can start?
Thanks in advance,

drive your parameters with an excel spreadsheet, then you can add pictures, pretty boxes etc, see attached
iLogic will allow you to do this, also, though perhaps without the pictures and pretty boxes! iLogic can also make sure that the entered paramaters are within proper ranges, if that's important.
iLogic, will most certainly allow for pretty pictures.
I don't have time to give step-by-step instructions for this right now. I would recommend just going thru the iLogic tutorials and you should have enough information to do something similar to what I've shown above.
Ok but unfortunately I cannot find any tutorials on how to drive a master part with an excel spreadsheet. Can you refer me somewhere? Sorry I have been using inventor for a couple months.
