Join John Helfen for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating holes, part of Up and Running with Autodesk Inventor.
The next feature we're going to look at is the Hole feature.…Inventor has two different types of features.…Sketch features, like the Extrude and Revolve, and Placed features, like the Fillet and Chamfer.…The Hole feature actually falls in the middle because you can use either method to create holes.…This part requires four holes to be added.…The first one is a flat bottom hole, the next two run completely through the part, and the…final one is a threaded hole.…While creating the holes I'll use both the Placed method and the Sketched method so that…you can see how each work.…They both create identical geometry so it's up to you as the designer to determine which you prefer.…
The first hole we're going to create is on the back of the part, and it's concentric…to one of the earlier extrudes we created.…To create the hole we're going to use the marking menu by right-clicking in the graphics…area and selecting the Hole command.…Within the Hole dialog box there is a bunch of different options that let you build intelligence into the hole.…
