…that you have a completely new product to design using Autodesk® Inventor® software. You need to create its functional model, check its operation still on the computer, prepare drawing documentation for production needs, including a list of parts and assembly illustrations. In addition, you need to prepare rendered illustrations and video for the marketing department. And in addition, the new product will be produced in many derivative versions, for which you also need to create a full set of drawings, rendered illustrations, videos, etc.
You have really a lot of work to do ...
And, you've just got a new tool - Autodesk® Inventor® 2020 software, which is an unknown software for you. You want to know the correct way to lead a project from a mechanical machinery branch in this software and you want to make the most of its parameterization capabilities to quickly create products variations.
This book is just for you.
This manual is intended for people for whom this is the first contact with Autodesk Inventor software. However, individuals who are familiar with the program will find here useful information about using parameterization techniques for the streamline creation of variants of the product. In this manual, you will find extensive descriptions and detailed illustrations explaining the tools used and the correct workflow techniques. The book presents three examples of the use of parameterization.
Example No 1. Designing a complete product
In the first example, you will learn how to work in Inventor, from scratch. You will create a project of a simple drill vise, on which you will learn the basic operations of modeling and creating drawing documentation. This example emphasizes the principles of project management, from a single part through designing parts in the context of the assembly, checking the basic kinematics of the product, and further creating a complete drawing documentation containing item numbers and a parts list, as well as an exploding view of the product, rendered illustration and video.
Then, thanks to the program parameterization and skillful file management, you will quickly create a new version of the drill vise with a complete set of drawing documentation as well as a rendered illustration and video of the new version of the product.
Example No 2. Component libraries
Most of the products being designed, use components purchased from external suppliers. For this reason, parametric 3D models of purchased components, which can be quickly inserted into the project instead of modeling each time from scratch, offer the greatest possible convenience for the constructor. In addition, component library files should be properly described, so that they are correctly presented in the bill of materials and also it should be placed in the library resources area, which will protect them from accidental editing. The examples presented here will teach you how to prepare your own parametric libraries of purchased components.
Example No 3. The parametric generator of product versions
In the third example, you will create a parametric generator for making a simple metal casing that allows you to obtain a model of any size, with or without handles and pre-prepared drawing documentation for each version. The generated version of the casing can be further modified in order to obtain the final appearance.
In this example, you will learn the basics of designing sheet metal parts, the use of parameters in parts and in the assembly, and you will learn the basics of programming using iLogic and how to use iLogic parametric version generators.
No additional files for download are required to complete the designs described - all files will be created from scratch in the exercises in sequence. Most of this manual is also compatible with previous versions of Inventor.
