Join Jana Schmidt for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a rendered image of the caddy assembly, part of Autodesk Inventor: Product Design Workflow.
- And we're back and ready to create a rendered image…of the caddy assembly.…Although the tools in Inventor Studio are somewhat limited,…you can still create a good-quality still image…of your design,…without needing an additional piece of software…to generate the image.…So let's start by opening our assembly file.…I'll open it from here.…It'd be silly of me not to mention,…if you only need a low-res snapshot of a part or assembly,…you can go to the Application menu,…and select Export Image,…and that will generate a low-resolution image…for any type of other use.…
So we'll go to Export, and you see Image there.…Basically you can go and Save.…Then it saves a pretty good quality image,…if you just need a small thumbnail type of image.…But we need a high-res image in this case.…So let's begin by going to the Environments tab.…And we're going to switch over…to the Inventor Studio environment.…You can see here the menus change…to more related to Render Image,…and we have Render Animation.…We're going to only work with Render Image.…
Jana reviews techniques such as setting up your project file; creating and modifying geometry; creating extrusions, sweeps, and lofts; and working with Inventor's freeform tools. She also shows how to combine your parts in an assembly, create presentation-quality animations and still renders of the design, and document the product design with working 2D drawings.
