I was working with some files this week to create a nice presentation for a customer and thought you might like to add this to your bag of tricks.
Inside of the IPN file you can do some nice view control to make good instructional files.
This is an easy bonus if you already make Exploded Assembly views for drawings.
You can even add text information to them to show up inside of a DWF file as well.
These are nice for publishing to AVI as well.

One of the forgetten uses of presentation files in Inventor is for creating great animated assembly instructions. These can easily be published to DWF for free viewing through Autodesk Design Review (free download from autodesk.com).
Take a look at this video for the general creation and publishing process:

I’ve often been asked how easy is it to create an exploded view to send to someone to clarify a design. Well, for most small assemblies, it’s almost too easy. Check out my video on how to create an exploded view with different sequences, camera angles and assembly instructions. Then, it’s published to DWF for sharing with anyone. Notice how the DWF captures everything you have in Inventor…. complete with the parts needed for each step of assembly.
I wish they would include this with some of my kids toys I have to put together!
