This textbook introduces the reader to Autodesk Inventor 2013, the world's leading parametric solid modeling software. In this textbook, the author emphasizes on the solid modeling techniques that improve the productivity and efficiency of the users. Also, the chapters are structured in a pedagogical sequence that makes this textbook very effective in learning the features and capabilities of the software. The following are some additional useful features of this book.

This textbook consists of 18 pedagogically sequenced chapters covering the Part, Assembly, Drafting, Presentation, Sheet Metal, and Weldment environments of Autodesk Inventor 2013 including Inventor Fusion. Each new section begins with a command section that provides a brief information of the Autodesk Inventor tools discussed in that section. Every chapter provides you with the tutorials that are created using these commands. This approach allows the user to use this textbook initially as a learning tool and then later as a reference material..
