A new option called Minimal was added to the Fillet Setbacks tab. Select the Minimal option so the system can define the minimum allowable setback for a given vertex.

This option often provides the smoothest transition and increases the probability of solving difficult vertex fillets. Let’s take a look at working with setbacks.

Non-Inventor Feature Recognition For Stubburn Features

A while back one of the other CAD Geeks blogged about this tool also.
I wanted to take it a bit further in detail.

Feature Recognition is a very usefull tool for making more inteligent models out of data that is created in other CAD packages. Sometimes not all of the features can be generated by using the automatic function. When this happens I use the same tool but go at it a litlle more manualy.
You can also pick like features at the same time to speed this up.

I used this to take some data from a Pro-E file type and make an Inventor part with true features.

This can save you hours of time by not having to remodel from scratch a needed part.

Stop the "Save Copy As" madness: Copy Components instead

I often hear people say they have to use the “Save copy As” option in Inventor in order to create a “similar” component as one already in their design. In most of these cases they just happened to overlook the “Copy Component” tool in Inventor’s assembly panel. The Copy Component tool allows us to copy parts and assemblies within our current design and place them with new file names into our current window. This requires about half the time as the Save Copy As workflow. Check out an example in this video:
