Hi guys,

I have just started to learn how to use Inventor.... I am loving this software so far but finding difficult to learn on my own.


I am trying to create a rectangle panel wood with sides with different angles (700x1000mm and thick of 15mm) 2 sides need to be 45degres and the 2 other 25degres.


I have tried withh the Extrude and taper function ...but this doesn t let me create different angles(taper) on each sides. 


What would be the best way to do this? What other function could i use?


I hope i was clear enought!


Thanks in advance

extrude your profile with square sides, then use the Chamfer command. You could also create a sketch on the side of panel, produce a triangle of the shape of the material you wish to remove and use the extrude command, but with the "cut" option.
