Re: Realy learning Inventor the correct way.

Best thing is to check out his web site - http://teknigroup.com

Basically its like normal instructor lead classes, except you hear him over VoIP and see his Inventor screen over the shared desktop connection. It works best if you have dual monitors so you can play with your own Inventor while watching him on the other monitor. I wouldn't avoid the class if you don't have a second monitor, but its definitely much better if you do.

Cheers,
Shawn

quote from your first post;
"I also though i saw a reference to being able to apply for a "take home
license" so that i could learn/train after work at home. Does anyone know
more about this?"

I believe the HULA is what you were refering to in that statement. It's
been a couple of years since I had one. But it allowed us to use the
Inventor serial number our company had for our home installations.

We had to have whom ever "signed" for the software at the company approve
our request for the HULA license. Since the software is in your name
mahuska, you should be able to obtain a HULA with your own name.

Sorry I don't have the info you'll need in order to obtain a HULA for
yourself. That's why I mentioned contacting whom ever you got the
software from.

Maybe try Mechanical Desktop first, it runs in Autocad and has a lot of features (like object snaps and a UCS command) that have been neglected in Inventor.

MDT and Inventor are reasonably similar. I have been using MDT for 10 years and lost a large percentage of my commands when changing over, so I found it extremely frustrating moving from MDT to Inventor. However, newer guys here who learnt to draw in autocad & started doing 3D stuff on MDT found the transition very easy, since they didn't have all the old MDT commands set in stone inside their heads yet.

Will do - I'm gradually building up a list and will post it on this forum once it's a bit more complete.
