There is an entire chapter that focuses on the basics of the iLogic functionality to automate designs. The remainder of the course covers all of the Assembly and Drawing enhancements that have been released in the Autodesk Inventor 2011 and 2012 software programs. Assembly enhancements include alternatives to how you can assign and work with constraints. The topics that discuss changes made to the Drawing environment are divided so that all view, annotation, and simple drawing usability enhancements are covered.
