Inventor - iCopy Frame (2/3)

Main Topics
    Inserting a Skeleton Model
    Creating Adaptive Sketches and Parts
    Adding Constraints to the Skeleton Part
    Authoring an iCopy Component
    Testing an iCopy Component

This is the second of three excerpts taken from this video created by Garin Gardiner of Autodesk, demonstrating the new experimental iCopy functionality for Autodesk Inventor 2009 and 2010. In this video Garin demonstrates how to insert a skeleton part model containing a sketch that will drive the iCopy component. He then shows how to insert a skeleton model, make it adaptive, add constraints, and select input points and parameters to include in the iCopy component. Finally, he shows how to quickly test the iCopy component using the sketch, before adding additional components. This example served as the basis of the CATIA / Digital Project videos previously posted on DesignReform. If you use the tool, please give feedback.
