Join Jana Schmidt for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the ring support subassembly using the Pattern command, part of Autodesk Inventor: Product Design Workflow.
- Alright, now we're taking a look at the…actual ring support part file, and I wanted to show you that…you can also change materials as well as appearances…in the part file as well, so anytime you need to adjust…when you're inside of those, you certainly can.…I'll adjust something bright that you can see here.…And, so, our idea here is we need to create…a pattern of these ring supports,…so that we can put multiple tumblers…inside of the beverage caddie.…
So, we will close out of the ring support for now,…and we're going to actually create a new assembly file.…Create.…We're going to place the ring support…one time into an assembly file.…Hit escape.…And we're going to apply that grounded constraint…to this part so that it doesn't have any degrees of freedom.…And now we're going to use pattern,…and this will be a rectangular pattern,…to make a series of ring supports.…
So, it's already selected the component on mine.…If you haven't I'll just kind of show you here, again.…Pattern, component would be this ring support.…
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.
