- Edit dimensions when created
- Autoproject edges during curve creation
- Autoproject edges for sketch creation and edit
- Autoproject part origin on sketch create
- 3D Sketch

Part - Application Options

- Sketch on New Part Creation
- Construction
- Auto-hide in-line work features
- Auto-hide in-line work features
- Auto-consume Work Features and Surface features

Part - Application Options

- 3D Grip Dimensional Constraint Relocation
- 3D Grip Geometric Constraint Relocation

Units

- Units
- Default unit of measurement
- Part, Assembly & Drawing files
- Template file
- Changing - Overridden
- Edit dimension

Templates

- Templates
- New files created from a template
- Add or Modify templates
- Template directory
- Subdirectory
- New Tab

Creating a Part

- From the Open dialog box click the Standard.ipt icon in the Open dialog box
- From the New file drop list on the Standard toolbar

Creating a Part

- Sketches & Default Planes
- Sketch plane
- 2D objects are sketched
- Active sketch
- Three planes
- XY,YZ, and XZ

- Three Axes
- X, Y, and Z

- Center
- Origin - point at the intersection

- Browser

- Sketch plane
- New Sketch
- Active sketch

Sketch the Outline of the Part

- Step 1 - Sketches Overview
- Sketching strategies, tools, & techniques
- Outline
- Draw to finished size/shape
- Visual Guide – distance & angle
- No overlaps & gaps
- Keep shape simple
- Closed vs. Open shape

- Sketch Tools
- Sketching tools
- Expert mode on/off

- Sketching strategies, tools, & techniques

Sketch the Outline of the Part

- Using the Sketch Tools
- Visual feedback

- Line Tool
- Powerful tool
- Endpoint - Arc

- Inferred Points
- Dashed lines
- Endpoints
- horizontal
- vertical
- perpendicular

Sketch the Outline of the Part

- Automatic Constraints
- Constraint symbols

- Scrubbing
- different constraint applied
- move the cursor so it touches

- Selecting Objects
- individually objects
- multiple objects
- color change

- Deleting Objects
- right-click

Measure Tools

- Measure
- Distances
- Points
- Edges
- Faces
- Parts

- Angles
- Loops
- Area
- Region Properties

- Distances

Analysis Tools

- Measure
- Additional Options
- Click the arrow in the Measure dialog box

- Additional Options

Constraining the Sketch

- Step 2 - Geometric Constraints
- Apply behavior
- Create relationships
- Status Bar
- Fully constrain
- Fix constrain

- Constraint Types
- 11 geometric constraints

Constraining the Sketch

- Geometric Constraints
- Adding Constraints
- Applying
- Over-constrain

- Constraint Visibility

- Adding Constraints

Constraining the Sketch

- Geometric Constraints
- Dragging a Sketch
- Constrained or Not
- Geometry stretches

- Showing Constraints
- Show all & Hide all F8 and F9
- To see applied constraints
- Objects change color

- Deleting Constraints
- Right-click or Delete key

- Dragging a Sketch

Construction Geometry

- Standard toolbar
- Add dimensions and constraints
- Not visible when a feature is created
- Always available in the sketch

Exercise 2-3

- Adding and Displaying Constraints

Adding Dimensions

- Step 3 – Adding Dimensions
- All dimensions created are parametric
- Control & change size of geometry
- General Dimensioning
- Create linear, angle, radial, or diameter
- Automatically snap
- Extension lines
- Preview image

- Dimensioning Lines
- Endpoints - two
- Length

- Dimensioning an Angle
- Two lines

Adding Dimensions

- Dimensioning Arcs and Circles
- Circumference
- Arc = radius
- Circle = diameter

- Diametric Dimensions
- Revolved part
- Represent a quarter outline
- Linear diameter
- Axis of rotation

- Dimensioning to a Tangency
- Arc or circle
- Constraint symbol changes
- Two quadrants

Adding Dimensions

- Entering and Editing a Dimension’s Value
- Automatically appear
- Change the value
- Edit Dimension option
- Default value
- To change double-click
- Enter exact value
- Accurate to six decimal places
- Smallest dimensions first

Adding Dimensions

- Entering and Editing a Dimension’s Value
- Repositioning a Dimension
- New location
- Origin points cannot be moved

- Over-Constrained Sketches
- Inventor will not allow
- over-constrain
- duplicate constraints
- conflict with another constraint

- Inventor will not allow
- Driven dimension
- Reference dimension
- Parentheses
- Over-constrained dimensions option

- Repositioning a Dimension

Adding Dimensions

- Auto Dimension
- Automatically apply
- Dimensions
- Constraints

- State number of dimensions or constraints required to fully constrain the sketch
- First apply critical constraints and dimensions
- Will not override or replace existing constraints or dimensions

- Automatically apply

Exercise 2-4

- Dimensioning A Sketch

Opening/Importing AutoCAD Files

- Copy to clipboard within AutoCAD and Paste in Inventor
- Open/Import AutoCAD & AutoCAD Mechanical Files
- New Drawing
- New Part
- Title Block
- Border
