Inventor Fusion 2013 for Beginners

This is the strip of tools at the top of the screen. We can minimize or maximize the ribbon, in case you need to free up more screen space for sketching in your graphic area. If you right-click anywhere on the ribbon you pull up a contextual menu where we can customize the contents and appearance of the ribbon.  Some of the options are Show Tabs and Show Panels. If I happen to right click on any tool, I can add that tool to the Quick Access toolbar. The Quick Access toolbar is a strip of tools right at the top of your Fusion screen, sitting to the left of the title bar.

AutoCAD Tutorials for Beginners: Quick Properties

AutoCAD Tutorials for Beginners: Quick Properties | CATIA video tutorials | Scoop.it

Welcome back to our series of AutoCAD tutorials for beginners. In this article, we’ll learn about working with Quick Properties in AutoCAD. We learned in a previous lesson that when we hover the mouse over a tool, a tooltip appears; well, when we hover the mouse over an object in the drawing area, a window appears that lists the various properties of whatever object we’ve got the mouse over. This is called a Rollover ToolTip; it auto-collapses when I mouse away.

 

We can modify how these rollover tool tips appear from the Options window. You can right-click anywhere in the graphic area, and select Options. Go to the Display tab. Under Color Scheme, check the boxes about showing the tooltips and showing the shortcut keys in the tooltips, as well as the extended tooltips and the number of seconds delay before the extended tool tip flies out.

 

When you select an object in the graphic area, and right-click, you’ll see two options for Properties and Quick Properties. First let’s take a quick peek at the properties option. A window appears displaying a detailed list of properties of the selected object—this is the properties palette - we’ll be looking at this in a subsequent lesson. For now, let’s take a look at the Quick Properties option. The quick properties palette appears, and it’s obviously less detailed than the Properties palette.

 

Here we can access these properties and make real-time modifications. Let’s change the color to red and adjust the coordinates of the centre of the circle. We’ll decrease the radius a bit. Now let’s launch the Customize dialog window. From here we can modify the Quick Properties display, as well as the Rollover tips. Let’s select Quick Properties. And from the column in the middle we select the object type. I’ll select circle, because that’s what I’m working with. From the column on the right, I’ll check the properties that I want displayed in the quick properties palette.

 

The same goes for the rollover tool tips—let’s select the object, CIRCLE, and on the right we’ll check the properties we want displayed in the rollover tool tip.

 

If I RC on the rollover tool tips, I can select Synchronize with Quick Properties to have them match. Here we choose the direction of synch—we can apply the rollover tips to the Quick Properties settings or vice versa. Let’s choose the second option.

To edit the object type list, click the customize button in the upper right hand corner. Here we can select additional object types. Click ok. Then click OK again to exit the window.

Now when I mouse over the circle, additional properties display in the rollover tool tip. Let’s select the circle and select Quick Properties. As you see, the additional properties are now available in the Quick Properties panel. Let’s click the options icon and go to Settings. Go to the Quick Properties tab. From this tab we control the functionality and appearance of the Quick Properties panel. And let’s select the collapse palette automatically options. Click ok and select the circle. RC, Quick Properties. Now the panel auto collapses; to expand, just mouse over the panel. Let’s close it.

 

Now, let’s go to Tools, and then select Drafting Settings. Uncheck the box “Collapse palette automatically” and click ok. When we select the circle again, then right click and select Quick Properties, we can change the color, but only the circle is available from the drop down menu on the top of the window. If you try to select the line at the same time. Then, right click and select Quick Properties. Now we see a list of properties that both objects share. Or we can select which object to modify individually. Let’s change the color to red. This concludes our article about Quick Properties in this AutoCAD tutorial for beginner’s series.

You know, my son’s grade two teacher told me sort of the same thing: they don’t teach spelling any more in school, because they want the kids to focus on more creative work. So my sweet lil’ guy can make a great painting and knows what the Ukrainians in Saskatoon ate 100 years ago, but his printing and spelling are at kindergarten level, and if I don’t teach him at home he will be essentially illiterate by grade 3.

CATIA Tutorials for Beginners Series

CATIA Tutorials for Beginners Series | CATIA video tutorials | Scoop.it

In CATIA, you can create two types of elements while you're sketching: standard elements, and construction elements. While creating each type of element is based on the same methodology, the impact they have on your model is different. Basically, what this means is you can use all the same tools to create both standard and construction elements—lines, circles, arcs, and so on.

You can create what’s called an Oriented Rectangle, also. This is rectangle that’s basically not planar to the X and Y axes. You’ll need to defined three extremity points of the rectangle. Your first step is to click the Oriented Rectangle tool on the Profiles toolbar (it’s on the predefined profiles sub-toolbar.) The toolbar again shows you fields where you can enter values for the coordinates of the rectangle, as well as the length of the rectangle lines. So you key in your desired values and click OK to accept your oriented rectangle. Easy!

Inventor Training for Beginners - Some Key Terms to Review

AutoDesk launched Inventor 1999, and it's a direct competitor of SOLIDWORKS. Inventor is a parametric modeler. Today, 3D parametric modelers are the dominant tools on the market for all kinds of design work. That's because parametric modelers constrain and track the relationships among your entities, and thus let you easily regenerate your models when you make a small change to one part of your model.

AutoCAD tutorials - Creating arrays (part 3) - Video-Tutorials.Net

AutoCAD tutorials - Creating arrays (part 3) - Video-Tutorials.Net | CATIA video tutorials | Scoop.it

Here is part three of our AutoCAD tutorials for beginners on creating arrays. You'll remember from our previous articles that an array is a collection of geometry. In SOLIDWORKS you call this feature a "pattern". AutoCAD was the first to introduce this feature, and in AutoCAD they are grouped into Polar Arrays (these are circular arrays), Rectangular Arrays (these are linear arrays), as well as Path Arrays, where you pattern an entity across a path that you define, like a spline, polygon etc.

 

In our last two articles I wrote about how to set up the parameters of your array, defining the base point, editing the source object, editing and exiting the array editing mode, how to create and modify circular array, and how to create and modify a rectangular array.

 

Let's talk about creating and editing a Path Array now. The first job you have is to create a path. We can use a more complex type of geometry with the path array. Try creating a polyline, and place a couple points. Then, right click and select Arc; this changes your drawing tool to the arc tool. Create an arc with a couple clicks, then right-click and go back to the polyline tool. Place a few more line points and when you're ready, press Escape on your keyboard to exit the polyline tool.

 

Next, create an object to pattern. I'll create a circle whose center point is snapped to the end point of my polyline. We're ready to activate the path array tool now! Choose it from the array submenu. First step is to select the object or objects to pattern. You'll see the prompt in the command bar. It'll state: ARRAYPATH Select objects: (isn't that nice of AutoCAD, to tell us what to do like this? In newer CAD software, there is no command prompt, but you'll still see instructions regarding what your next step should be, in the status bar at the bottom of the screen of your software). So, I'll select the circle, and then right-click in blank space in the graphic area to finish the selection. Now we're prompted to select a path. The command prompt tells us: ARRAYPATH Select path curve. Select the complex line you just created with the polyline and arc tools. And presto, your circle is patterned the whole way along the path. So, in just a few simple clicks you've created some pretty complex geometry.

 

After this, you can use the handles in the graphic area or the edit array fields at the top of the graphic area to make some changes to your path array. You can adjust how many items appear in the array, how far apart they are, make the array associative or not. When you're done, click Close Array. To edit the array, just click on it in the drawing area. We'll talk more about editing your path array in our next article.

 

This concludes the third of our AutoCAD tutorials for beginners about creating and editing arrays in AutoCAD.
