One of the new features in Inventor is the ability to scale your models. You might be wondering, why didn’t Inventor have this ability prior to the release? Well, it does exist in prior releases of Inventor, but it’s just much easier to Scale an object in 2016. In previous releases of Inventor, a simple Scale command does not exist, but you can achieve the scale by creating a Derived Part. It takes several steps to accomplish, and is done by creating two files, so it does leave a lot to be desired. The good news is that Inventor 2016 solves that issue.
In this tutorial we will learn how to use Scale tool in Autodesk Inventor.
When you constrain or join assembly components to one another, you control their position. To move or rotate a component, either temporarily or permanently, use one of the following methods:
You can import points from a Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet into a 2D sketch, 3D sketch, or drawing sketch. You can use the points to represent items such as inspection points, locations for spot welds, and points on a spline.

The idea that geometry within Autodesk Inventor behaves differently due to the application of constraints often hinders new users transitioning from a 2D drawing application.
Autodesk Inventor uses constraints in two primary ways:
2D and 3D sketch constraints control geometry within sketches
Assembly constraints and joints establish relationships between components in an assembly that control position and behavior.
There are two ways to created revolved features: from a sketch profile or from a primitive. The primitive shape creation commands create full revolutions only.
