Today we’ll look at a basic option that has been around, but I am unsure of it’s widespread usage. The Copy and Paste of features in Inventor. Seems like everyone uses it in every other application, why not use it when you are designing? If you have a feature (or features) that was generated from a sketch, you can easly re-use that in another part by placing an orientating it to the right position. Let’s take a look…..
I’m always one for shortcuts, hopefully you can use this as well.

Do you ever run across situations where you would like to pattern or mirror a feature, but they won’t work because your intended result isn’t to have symmetrical features?
Try Copying the feature instead. You can copy features from one face onto another, and can even link the copy to the parameters of the original.
