Parameters

When we looked at creating dimensions we talked about adding intelligence to a sketch. Parameters are what give dimensions the ability to add that intelligence. And I want to show you how parameters work right now. I'm going to start a new part file by selecting New from the toolbar Selecting Standard.ipt as my template and clicking Create to start a new part file. I'm going to get into a sketch by creating a new 2D sketch. I'm going to select a plane from the origin geometry that's presented. And I'm now in the sketch environment ready to create geometry.

Now, when we were creating dimensions, what you didn't know is that you were already using parameters. Inventor automatically is creating a parameter for every single dimension that is created in the system. It does it in a very hidden way, but you can access those parameters, because they allow you to do things like create formulas, and make relationships between pieces of geometry very easily. I'm going to start with a ...
