It’s been a while since we reviewed some of the Design Accelerators in Inventor, so for 2012 I thought we should catch up on them. Starting with the Bolted Connection Generator. Check out this video to see a bolted connection placed on a circular pattern. A sketch with a circular pattern of points is already created as a starting point for the holes and fasteners.

With the introduction of Inventor 2012 Autodesk has increased user productivity with the introduction of the Marking Menu. This new menu will allow for quicker access to the most common features/commands no matter what environment you happen to be working in. This new menu replaces the right-click context menu. The new menu takes a couple times of working with it to get totally comfortable but it sure is a great time saver. This post will show you how to customize this menu to add all your favorite commands you most commonly use. I show other aspects of the menu even how to revert to the classic look but remember the classic look probably won’t be around forever.

Today we look at working with variable radius fillets with Autodesk Inventor 2012. I will show how to set-up and work with the feature itself and also the visual feedback we receive when working with these types of fillets. Something new in 2012 is that variable radius fillets support G2 control. Use a G2 transition to eliminate visible seams between faces.
