Top  Previous  Next

iParts work with parametric parts.


Steps to create an iPart, a tube for example:


1.Create a new part.
2.In the sketch add a circle
3.Add a dimension to the circle and in the tiny mm box type Diameter=20
4.End the sketch and extrude it.
5.In the edit box for the extrusion type Length=50.
6.Finish the sketch
7.Now you have two model parameters named as you want as Length and Diameter (instead of the default L0 and D0).
8.You also have a tube which is 20 by 50
9.Now go into the Manage tab and click on the Create iPart icon. (if grey disabled trying saving the file)
10.Now you can create a table of different sized tubes. Each row of the table is called a Member.
