Does Inventor have a 'Difference' command like Autocad or some other way to subtract one 3D shape from another - I haven't found one yet...  Thanks for your patience..

I think the command is Subtract in AutoCAD.

In Inventor you can either have it cut the material when creating the second feature


create a New Solid like AutoCAD

and then use the Combine-Subtract command.
