Assignment 13.

1 (Assembly) – Inventor Professional 2010

Getting Started

1. To begin, go to Start > Programs >Autodesk Inventor Professional 2010 > Autodesk Inventor
Professional 2010.

2. When open, click on the ‘new’ button.

a. Click on the ‘metric’ tab and then open the Standard (mm).ipt
3. You should be looking at a blue sketch window with a grid system. Now you can begin the first

Top Half

1. By default, the “sketch” tab is selected (the far right tab on the top). The other
tab we will be working with is “model” (far left tab).
a. To start creating the geometry we need, click on the Rectangle button.
b. Create a rectangle of any size in the blue window.
c. Now it’s time to define the rectangle’s size. Click on the dimension
i. Click on one of the lines to select the rectangle’s length and
width to dimension.

ii. When you have the dimensions created, double click on the actual numbers of the
dimension and redefine the correct sizes. Length = 86mm. Width = 30mm.
2. Next, we need to extrude this geometry. Click on the model tab to bring up this command.
a. Hit F6. This will bring you to a SE
isometric view. Next, select the
extrude button. A window will
appear that asks you for a height and
asks you to select the profile to
extrude. Since we only have one
profile, it is already selected. Enter
’38 for the height and click OK.
b. To rotate this geometry click on the Orbit button on the right side of the
model space. This command works very much the same as ‘orbit’ in
AutoCAD. Remember, you can always return to SE isometric by
clicking F6.

3. Now we need to create the holes in this part. We will be using the Extrude command again, but
first we must define where these holes are to be located.
a. First, click on the Create 2D Sketch
button on the top left navigation
toolbar. Then, click the top surface of
the box to create a sketch plane on that
b. Create two circles near the ends of the
geometry by clicking on the Circle

c. Click on the Dimension button to

define the size of the circles (Ø8mm),
and their placement from the sides of the
geometry. They should be 15mm from the sides
and 9mm from the ends.
d. Once done, click on the Model tab again and
select the Extrude command. Select both the
circle’s profiles, click on the Boolean cut

option, then select the distance (it should go through the part). Click OK.
e. Do the same procedure to create the large half circle (Ø52mm) thru the part.
4. Finally, we will round the edges of the part.
a. Click on the Fillet command and select the size to be 4mm. Then, select all
four edges that need to be filleted. Click OK.

To Save

5. Save the part as ‘Top Half’.

Lower Half

1. To begin the lower half, we must begin a new part. Click on the ‘new’ button. Select the
metric tab and select Standard(mm).ipt
2. To begin creating the lower half, follow the same procedure as creating the top half One obvious
difference is that you must create the other side of the semicircle cut through the part.
3. To create the counter bore hole at the bottom of the part, we will first create a sketch
on the bottom of the part using the Create 2D Sketch command.
a. Create two Ø12 circles centered on the existing Ø8 holes.

4. Extrude the two circles. Use the Boolean operation ‘cut’ to cut the counter bore into the part to a

depth of 6mm.

5. Save the part as ‘Lower Half’


1. To begin the strap, we must begin a new part. Click on the ‘new’ button. Select the metric
tab and select Standard (mm).ipt
2. Create the strap using the same procedure and commands as the other two parts, paying careful
attention to sizing and making sure to create the fillets.
3. Save the part as ‘Strap’

Hex Bolt

1. To begin the hex bolt, we must begin a new part. Click on the ‘new’ button. Select the
metric tab and select Standard (mm).ipt

Overall Dimensions for the Hex Bolt

2. In the sketch, create a hexagon using the Polygon
a. Define the width using the Dimension button across flats
to be 12mm.
b. Extrude this to a height of 5mm.
c. Once extruded, round all the top edges using the Fillet command with a radius of 1mm.
Note: selecting “loop” will allow you to fillet all 6 edges at once.
3. On the bottom surface of this extrusion, create a Sketch.
a. Draw a circle centered in the middle of the hexagon and define it to have a diameter of
7mm. you might have to dimension it carefully to make sure it is centered on the
b. Extrude this circle below the hexagon to a distance of 92mm.
4. To create the thread, click the
Thread command.
a. Uncheck on the box labeled ‘Full Length’.
Change the length to be 20mm.
b. Click on the face button, and click somewhere
on the bottom half of the cylinder (so the
threads appear on the bottom of the cylinder).
c. The thread specification should already be
M7x1. Click OK.
5. Once threaded, use the Chamfer
command to make a 1mm x 1mm
chamfer around the bottom edge of the cylinder.
6. Save the part as ‘Hex Bolt’

1. To begin the assembly, we must begin with a new assembly drawing. Click

on the ‘new’ button. Select the metric tab and select Standard
2. To begin we must get all needed parts into the drawing. Click the Place button and
find the files labeled ‘Top Half’, ‘Lower Half’, ‘Strap’, and ‘Hex bolt’. Place these
into the drawing one by one. Place the ‘Hex bolt’ in twice.

3. Next we need to assemble the parts. Click on the Constrain command

a. In the constraint window that

will appear, click on the insert
type of constraint.
b. To use this, click on the top surface of the bottom half (with the arrow pointed up) and
the bottom surface of the top half (with the arrow pointed down). Be sure to click apply
to complete the function. This will join the top and bottom half.
c. Proceed by placing the strap on the top of the ‘top half’ and the bolts through the holes as
shown. Be sure to pay careful attention to the order in which you are selecting the parts
and the location of the red circle that appears on the part. For example, the red circle on
the bolt should be located at the top of the cylinder as shown.
d. Once completed, the assembly should not be able to be pulled apart by clicking and

Instructions for Turning in the Assignment

1. Be sure to include all four (4) Standard (mm).ipt files, which include the top and lower half, hex
bolt and the strap. Send your assembly drawing (Standard (mm).iam) as well. Without all of
these files, your Instructor will not be able to view or grade your assignment.
