Join Thom Tremblay for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with the Punch tool, part of Inventor: Sheet Metal Design.
…Deformed features can't be folded.…So a special operation needs to be done to create these stamped features.…Now I use the Stamp tools to place these complex features on a part.…And take a look at a couple of the options that are available through them.…One of the things that's required to use Punch tools, is a sketch.…You have to have a point for…that Punch tool to strike in order to modify the sheet metal.…So that approach is taken inside of Autodesk Inventor.…Apply a sketch, set a point, and then take the Punch tool and apply it on that point.…
So let's use the Punch tool and select an operation that we want to create.…Autodesk adventure comes with a series of Punch tools predefined, but…you can also create your own and add them to the library.…Once I've started the tool, it will give me a preview and…then I can make modifications.…For example I can go to the Geometry.…I change the angle that I want to apply this at.…And I can even go in some Punch tools and…select a list of optional sizes or add sizes that I like.…
