How can I make second solid body in part?

By neznajut on 10 Jun 19:58 1 answer 1216 views 0 comments

Can I model next solid body in a part?

In help for Combine solid bodies (http://help.autodesk.com/view/INVNTOR/2014/ENU/?guid=GUID-8EF4903C-2FA1-4939-8304-75FB0C51B611): "The most efficient way to position the bodies is to create them in place using feature create commands with the New solid option. ..."

Where is that new solid command?

    WHEN YOU CREATE A FEATURE (EXTRUDE/REVOLVE/LOFT/...) YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO ADD TO/CUT FROM/INTERSECT WITH A PREVIOUS BODY. TO CREATE A NEW SOLID. IF YOU PICK THIS ONE, THE THREE OPTIONS ABOVE WILL GREY-OUT.

    YOU MUST ALSO TAKE NOTE THAT, FROM THIS POINT FORWARD, WHEN YOU CREATE A NEW FEATURE, YOU WILL HAVE TO SPECIFY THE SOLID TO WHICH THAT IS APPLICABLE.

    AND THEN LATER ON YOU CAN (IF YOU WANT) COMBINE ALL THE SOLIDS INTO ONE.

    OR YOU CAN SPLIT THE PART INTO PARTS PLACED IN AN ASSEMBLY, BUT STILL LINKED BACK TO THIS "PARENT"-PART.

    IT WILL BE WORTH YOUR WHILE TO LOOK FOR A BOOK CALLED "MASTERING INVENTOR" BY CURTIS WAGUESPACK (THERE ARE PDF'S AVAILABLE). THERE'S A SECTION ON CREATING MULTI-BODY PARTS.
