Welcome to 3D modeling as it should be! As an AutoCAD user, you are about to enter a brand-new CAD experience, one where you no longer worry about text sizes, linetype scales, paper space, and plot styles. Instead, you sketch with Inventor, then extrude, assemble-and your 3D model is done! As technical editor Bill Fane puts it, "Inventor lets us get back to 'napkin CAD'." Learning Autodesk Inventor 2008: The 2D to 3D Transition Handbook examines and clearly explains the similarities and differences between AutoCAD and Inventor.
