Chapter 1 Page 13

The first paragraph "Create" should be "3D Model".

Chapter 2 Page 14

Step numbers do not correlate with those shown in top image.

Chapter 2 Page 18

The fourth bullet point should be a new paragraph:

The Free Orbit command allows us to:

  • Orbit a part or assembly in the graphics window. Rotation can be around the center mark, free in all directions, or around the X/Y-axes in the 3D-Orbit display.
  • Reposition the part or assembly in the graphics window.
  • Display isometric or standard orthographic views of a part or assembly.

The Free Orbit tool is accessible while other tools are active. Autodesk Inventor remembers the last used mode when you exit the Orbit command.
