I sometimes run across an Inventor user that has played around with some of the “settings” and now they can’t clearly tell which part they are editing in the context of their assembly. This is usually due to the “Component Opacity” setting that is commonly overlooked (or turned on without knowing what it does). Take a look at the following video for an example of the component opacity as well as another overlooked visibility option.

Frame Generator – Out of the Box

Here is a little video about how to use tools in Inventor, such as Frame Generator, in a way that may not be apparent at first glance. Here I’m going to create the bracket shown at right by using Frame Generator tools. By thinking slightly out of the box, you may be able to use the tools you have in a manner that fits your design worflows.

I’ve Found The Missing "LINK"

While doing some work with one of my customers this week, I helped them to simplify how they go about editing a design to create a new version.

We began using parameters in their parts and then add the functionality of linked parameters across other parts.

Check out this Video:

The process is really simple to use and can reduce your need to open every file to make changes.

Autodesk Intent – Step 1 – Adopting Components

Every journey starts with a first step. The first step in any Autodesk Intent automation project is the creation and adoption of Inventor components into the Intent environment. In the following video you will learn how to optimize your Inventor designs for use within Intent, use the Intent Entity Naming Editor to properly name elements of your Inventor components, and use the Intent Adoption wizard to make your component ready for use in Intent. These steps will help set the stage for serious efficiency improving automation in subsequent steps.

Lets get started!
