Welcome to the Inventor Tutorials page.
This is where you will find all of the non-series Autodesk Inventor Tutorials. These tutorials are self-standing whereby they do not have a prerequisite tutorial that they depend on, nor do they have a followup tutorials to compete a series. Use the links below or the drop-down to the right to navigate, and have fun!
This set of Inventor Tutorials (four pages) focuses on tracking down and fixing the elusive ‘Information Error’. For someone new to Inventor, these errors can be very frustrating as there is no real help in Help –even if you can find the correct subject.

You may end up with a ton of these icons and no idea how to proceed!
