Inventor - iCopy Frame (3/3)

Main Topics
    Deriving Geometry from a Skeleton Model
    Creating Parts from Derived Geometry
    Constraining Parts to a Skeleton Model
    Adding Non-Adaptive Parts to the iCopy Component
    Patterning an iCopy Assembly

This is the third 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 shows how to derive geometry from the skeleton model to use as references in creating additional components. He then shows how to add constraints between the individual parts and the skeleton model. Finally, he patterns the assembly using iCopy and shows how to add additional non-adaptive parts to the iCopy component. This example served as the basis of the CATIA / Digital Project videos previously posted on DesignReform. If you use the tool, please give feedback.
