Welcome back to another quick step by step guide created by our Technical Specialist Sid that showcases another new function in Inventor 2020 that gives the user the ability to sweep a solid along a path and gives the user the functionality to create threads or sweeps to the users liking. This function allows the user to create complex geometry quicker and in a much more simplified way.
The first step is to make sure your solid sweep command is turned on which is a little green box next to the tool body option.
Making sure our solid sweep command is on that is a little green box next to the tool body option.
Then we will select the solid and the curve along where it needs to be swept and you can see we have a little preview and then to select the solid that you need to make to make the cut out.
The final step is to define the solid bodies and there you go, you have a solid swept body just like that!
So, to summarise that’s what the solid sweep feature is all about – hope you found this quick tutorial beneficial! Procad is an Autodesk authorised training, check out our website to book training in Inventor Essentials and Inventor Advanced.
With the recent release of Autodesk Revit 2024, a range of new features have been added to help users design more creatively, document more efficiently and manage projects more effectively. Now, let's take a closer look at the new features!
Let’s begin with a quick overview of Fusion 360. It is a computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software developed by Autodesk. Fusion 360 is a cloud-based platform that allows designers, engineers, and manufacturers to collaborate and work on product designs in a single environment.
With Fusion 360, users can create 3D models, perform simulations, and generate toolpaths for CNC machining and 3D printing. It also includes features for collaboration, such as version control and commenting, which makes it easy for teams to work together on complex projects.
Every year, Autodesk releases an updated version of their well-known and versatile application software used by a large variety of people, architects, engineers, or designers and this year is no different. You may have already heard something about it or, if you are reading this article, you want to know a little bit more, so let’s take a look at AutoCAD 2024.
