"The author is director of a company that provides training, support, and consulting for Autodesk Inventor. He writes that his intent is to address what he has seen as an apparent lack of confidence among users of the software to apply it fully. His text demonstrates the capabilities of the software through step-by-step explanation of how it was applied to various design problems. The author presents much of his information in the forms of flow charts, lists, screen grabs, and tables."--Mechanical Engineering Magazine
