When you create extrusions from a sketch profile, the extruded result that you specify, such as a solid, or a surface, determines the geometry that you can select. For example, when you specify a surface extrusion, you can select open or closed loops made up of sketch curves, or projected face edges. When you specify a solid extrusion, with no preselected geometry, you can select either curves or regions. If you preselect a region, you cannot select individual curves or loops to extrude, and if you preselect a curve or loop, you cannot select a region. Creating sketch features from primitive shapes automates the sketching and extrusion process. In the Primitive panel, you can use Box to create a square or rectangular feature or body, for example, or Cylinder to create a cylindrical feature or body. You select a start plane for the sketch, define the profile, and then create an extruded solid.
In this tutorial we will learn how to use Extrude tool using Autodesk Inventor.
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.
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?
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.
Autodesk Inventor software provides engineers and designers a professional grade solution for 3D mechanical design, simulation, visualization, and documentation. Autodesk Inventor includes powerful modeling tools as well as multi-CAD translation capabilities and industry standard DWG™ drawings. Helping you to reduce development costs, get to market faster, and make great products.
Sweeps can be created along a path, along a path and a guide rail, or along a path and a guide surface. You can create sweep features in parts or assemblies. However, sweep with guide surface is not available in the assembly environment.
