Inventor I-Parts creation and benefits – Part 1

In Inventor you can Create a part that is driven with Parameters. When a part has been created, you can convert it in an I-Part. How do we do this? First, we will create our sketch, and assign the certain required parameters, to the sketch, for example width, height, length, as a few examples.

Parameters can be linked to the 2D sketch or even the 3D environment, For instance the Extrusion or holes. In the Manage tab, Author Panel, you will see the Create I-Part tool.

After the I-Part has been created, you will notice in your browser you have an I-parts table. including all your work Features.

An I-Part table has been created, and you can Edit the table or even create different parts, using the individual part that has been created. For example, if you have multiple stock parts that is similar in shape, but the sizes are different, you can create an I-Part table, that’s driven by the Parameters, to create multiple, different parts, using the single entity that was created.

Opening the I-Part table, you will see the parameters that has been created, with the sizes. You can change the sizes of the original part in the table or can add additional parts.

By right Clicking on the first row, you will have the option to add an additional row, here you can rename, the second part and change the sizes as required. You can create Multiple parts using the same entity. Customization can be done, from part numbers to the member’s name, equations can be inserted in the parameters, sizes can be changed and more. See Part 2 for more.
