Join John Helfen for an in-depth discussion in this video Drawing with the Line tool, part of Learning Autodesk Inventor.
In this movie, we're going to focus on drawing with the Line tool. And the time is finally…come to begin creating sketches that will turn into 3D parts.…We'll pull together all the things we've learned up to this point to begin creating our first part.…We'll start by creating the starter mounting plate.…I have the assembly of the engine opened so that we can get a feel for the part we're…going to be creating.…In this case, it's located right here on the back of the engine and attached to it is the…starter cover, which covers the mechanism that will be used to start the engine.…
To get a better look at this part I'm going to right-click on it and select Open so that…it appears in its own window as if I've opened part file by itself.…This should allow us to see a basic overview of what this part looks like and the components…that we're going to begin sketching.…Now in this case, the most important part is the base, the large rectangle that everything attaches to.…Whenever I'm creating parts I like to try to start with the most significant piece of…
