Course Information

Autodesk Inventor Design Variations and Representations

Autodesk Inventor Design Variations and Representations contains topics that teach you how to efficiently create and represent designs based on existing geometry. Using this student guide, you will learn how the iFeature, iPart, and iAssembly tools can be used to leverage existing geometry to quickly and easily create additional or slightly varied geometry, and how iMates can be used to define geometry placement in an assembly.

Topics Covered:

Create and place an iFeature.
Use the Copy command to duplicate features in a model or between models.
Create a table-driven iFeature. Edit an iFeature.
Create an iPart that can generate different configurations of a model.
Insert standard or custom iParts into an assembly.
Replace an iPart in an assembly with a new iPart instance.
Modify an iPart factory.
Use a table-driven iPart to create an iFeature.
Build iMate constraints into parts or subassemblies.
Combine multiple iMates into a Composite iMate group.
Manually or automatically match iMates of parts in an assembly.
Control the order in which iMate pairs are previewed by using the Match List functionality.
Vary constraint settings in iParts by including iMates.
Create and place an iAssembly.
Edit an iAssembly Factory.
Create and edit different positional representations of an assembly by overriding the existing settings of an assembly.
Create a Shrinkwrap part that is a simplification of the original component.
Selectively determine which assembly components to include in a simplified view and use that information to create a new part model.
Define bounding box or cylindrical geometry to represent assembly components and use that information to create a new part model.
Combine the use of a simplified view, envelopes, and visibility settings to create a new simplified model.
Display a system-defined Level of Detail (LOD) Representation.
Simplify the display and create user-defined LOD Representations in an assembly.
Replace a complex component for a simpler one using a Substitute Level of Detail Representation.


A mastery of Autodesk Inventor basics as taught in the Autodesk Inventor: Introduction to Solid Modeling course.
