This section describes some common techniques that are used in Inventor Fusion to create designs. It covers a wide range of modeling techniques that can be used to create and edit model geometry and components in an Inventor Fusion design. First, a few notes about the nature of an Inventor Fusion design. The following image is an example of a simple Fusion design:

Create 3D ModelsThis simple design has some elements that are worth pointing out:

1 The Bodies folder in the browser. This folder contains all of the bodies for a component. This example has a single body Body1.

2 The Body node in the browser. Each body owned by the component has an entry in the Bodies folder.

3 The Sketches folder in the browser. This folder contains all of the sketches for a component. This example has a single sketch, which is invisible (the light bulb icon shows the visibility state for many items in a Fusion design).

4 The Sketch node in the browser. Each sketch owned by the component has an entry in the Sketches folder.

5 Feature nodes in the browser. These items represent geometry which has been create using a feature command in Fusion. In this example, the design has two features: Extrude1, and Hole2. The nodes underneath Feature nodes show individual body faces that were created by that feature.

6 The component body. The graphics area shows the geometry of the component. Most operations are performed by the user on this representation of the component.

An Inventor Fusion design may also contain:

■ Multiple bodies

■ Work geometry

■ Annotation planes and annotations

■ Named views

■ Child components

An example of a more complex design is shown here:

Create 3D ModelsPoints of interest:

■ The design contains a second body.

■ The design contains a work axis.

■ The design contains a child component (Component2).

■ The design contains a second-level of component (Component3).
