Construction geometry

Now that we've learned how to create sketch geometry, it’s time to talk a little bit about construction geometry within the sketch. Construction geometry, is very similar to standard sketch geometry, with one little twist, and I'll show you what I mean as we move along. To begin, we're going to start by creating a new part by clicking the New button in the tool bar. Next, we'll select standard.ipt as our template and select Create to launch the new file. Now that we are in a new part file, we can begin by creating a new sketch.

We'll select Create 2D Sketch from the Sketch panel. From the origin geometry, we'll select a plane to sketch on, and we are now in the sketch environment and ready to create geometry. The easiest way to see construction geometry, is to let Inventor create it for you, and we'll do that, to start, by creating a specific type of rectangle. Rather than the two point rectangle, which is the default in Inventor, we're going to use the arrow next to t...
