Drawing Layouts

  • Step 0 - Projects (.ipj) - a workspace
    • Tells Inventor where to save files, can be a network drive
    • Projects use relative paths rather than absolute paths when the project locations such as the workspace, workgroup, or libraries are in a subfolder of the folder that contains the project file. About Projects Autodesk Inventor 2019
    • C:\Users\JeffJourneyJensen\journeyeducation.org\Jensen - Documents\JeffJensen\GISEngineering\Inventor\projects (home computer)
    • Can only have one active project open at a time
    • Design Data Folder - To Move the Design Data Folder
  • Step 1 - create drawing template GISE.idw
  • Step 1 - create the title block in AutoCAD
  • Step 2 - using Inventor, open the AutoCAD title block
    • Options… → Non-Inventor DWG File → Import
    • DWG/DXF File Wizard → Read Content From: AutoCAD or AutoCAD Mechanical File
      • Import Destination Options
        • Import Files Units → Detected Units → inch

    • Error: Undefined Template creation in progress. Insert not done. Please complete and close creation in progress and try again.
  • Step 3 - save as Autodesk Inventor DWG in the Templates folder
  • Step 4 - drawing resources are like AutoCAD Design Center (ADC) storing blocks, layout shows an instance of the border and title block, if you delete the border, it is still available in the drawing resources

    • Drawing Resources → Sketch Symbols → right click Define New Symbol
  • [Q] How do you use a sketch symbol
    • Annotate tab → Insert Sketch Symbol
  • [Q] How do I save sketch symbols to a Symbol Library?
    • right click on Sketch Symbols and select “Save All to Symbol Library”

Borders

  • Drawing Resources → Borders
  1. [Q] How do you change the page size of the border? I want to make a border for different paper sizes - 8.5×11, 11×17, 24×36
  2. [Q] How do I draw construction lines in the Border sketch? I want to make some reference guides, no-plot layers, similar to how dimensions don't plot
  3. [Q] How do I create different layers and/or lineweight of the Border? I want a thick lineweight for the Border, but thin lineweight and transparency for the GD&T table, etc

Knurl in 3D part model view

  • Issues showing a knurled surface - Autodesk Inventor - Knurled 45 appearance not displaying properly by Adam Forney. For some reason this video only played in Google Chrome (got error using Firefox and IE).
    • Step 1 - select part face to be knurled and assign the “Knurled 45” material to it.
    • Step 2 - open the Appearance Browser, right click on the “Knurled 45” material and select Edit
      • Figure 1-0 Assign and Edit Knurl 45 material
    • Step 3 - Change the Relief Pattern type from Knurl to Custom Image
      • Figure 2-0 Knurl Relief Pattern - Custom Image
    • Step 4 - assign knurl image (C:\Users\Public\Documents\Autodesk\Inventor 2015\Textures\bumpmaps\Knurl_bump.bmp)
    • Step 5 - change sample size to 0.08 inches (click the image to open the Texture Editor dialog box)
      • Figure 3-0 Knurl Sample Size
    • Note - the knurl texture pattern will only display in a drawing (.idw) isometric view that is shaded. Will not be shown in a multiview drawing.

Knurl in 2D part drawing view

  • Step 1 - open Inventor drawing file (.idw)
  • Step 2 - select the right or top view border (red dotted line) you want to apply a hatch to
  • Step 3 - Ribbon → Place Views tab → Start Sketch (open the Sketch tab)
  • Step 4 - Sketch > Project Geometry and select the boundary
  • Step 5 - draw a rectangle over the projected geometry, ensure it snaps to the edges so it remains dynamic
  • Step 6 - Ribbon: Click “Hatch Region” button (keep this open)
  • Step 7 - select rectangle from step 5
  • Step 8 - change hatch pattern from step 6, then click OK
