Autodesk Virtual Academy: Modifying 2D Sketches in Inventor

by Daniel Hwang on Nov 23, 2016

Inventor is a powerful CAD tool that primarily uses parametric modeling. However, there's much more this tool can do in regards to modeling. Inventor comes with vector-based modeling tools, making it a great tool for anyone moving to the 3D world with a traditional 2D background. 

In this session of Autodesk Virtual Academy, we go over the various tools such as trim, extend, and offset found in Inventor to help modify and optimize your 2D sketches. We also illustrates how to share your sketches and when this feature might be useful.

AVA Closer Look: Introduction to iLogic

by Bryce Ochoa on Mar 10, 2016

In a recent Autodesk Virtual Academy session, Travis Evans showed us how you can use iLogic and Configurator 360 together and how these tools can benefit both the design team and the sales team. Today we're going to take a step back and and give you an introduction to iLogic. We'll start from the beginning and show you how to use to use and configure it.

What is iLogic?

iLogic is a tool within Inventor that enables rules-driven design, making it easy for users to reuse their work, automate their design processes, and even configure their virtual products.

How does iLogic work?

iLogic implements rules as objects directly into part, assembly, and drawing files. These rules then determine and drive a parameter and attribute values for your design. By controlling these values you can designate how the attributes, features, and components of your model will behave.

Making an Impact: Mentoring for the Future

by Jonathan D. Kriek on Dec 10, 2015

Most of the core knowledge I've learned over the years as been self-taught. I love the challenge of picking up a new programming language or software and simply learning it inside and out, but not everyone is able to extract this knowledge as easily.

Today, in the information age, with rapidly growing technology connecting everyone, we can learn almost anything on the internet. But there is a lot to be said for information that simply can't be learned from an online pre-recorded video, electronic book, web help page, or even blog - things like troubleshooting that only come through experience, for example. We can document common issues, provide known solutions, and dump our knowledge into it, but often it's all missing a key element.
