missing part mi_11a_003 Starting out - "Mastering Autodesk Inventor 2012"

Hi

I am a technician attempting to fix this problem for a tutor.

I have missing parts on only one tutorial file as downloaded from sybex downloads

 

On mi_11a_001_done.iam the bolt nut and washer were unresolved, so I used 7zip to dump all files in the same folder- by default windows 7 unzipper put them in seperate chapter folders which appeared to break the parts links.

On this example by clicking "content centre" on the left part of the open dialog box the 3 parts were then found. This appears to be my custom content.

 

On mi_11a003.iam The parts are not resolvable, searching the entire folder for *part* reveals nothing, have I missed a dependant zip download? Or some parts to add to my library at the start?

 

Open attempt

All the other tutorials load fine!

 

My Content centre is set to programdata\autodesk\Inevntor 2012\content centre\libraries - where large files are present, and items can definately be placed from the content centre into a project.

 

My issue is close to this one -

Had the same problem with mi_11a_003

I sent this to the publisher/author on 9/26/12 ..........never recieved a reply

 

 

Working my way through the design accelerator (chapter 12) of your book

On page 498 I am asked to open an assembly mi_11a_003 when i try to do so there are two files missing named

Part2

Part3

Presumably they are missing from the download package

I can just create my own versions of these,however I thought i would let you know

Hi

Yep I thought I would just re create them ,but I dont know what they are. I realise aslong as we can perform some calculations on the joint/bolts etc thats all that matters.
