                   Inventor and AutoCAD

     Inventor
       Create a sketch with features

       Use dimensioning to size and locate features

     AutoCAD
       Need to know features size and location

                   Inventor and AutoCAD

     Inventor – A true parametric modeling program
       Build the model and then extract drawings

       Menus are on the top and left of the screen

       Menus change as different tasks are employed

       Bi-directional, fully associative functionality

                   Inventor and AutoCAD

     AutoCAD – Originally just a 2D drawing program
       In effect, electronic tools and a sheet of paper

       The user original interface required word or letter

        commands be typed in
       Icons have been added, but you can still use the

        older text commands
       Many functions have been added – 3D solid

        modeling

                   Inventor and AutoCAD

     AutoCAD – Originally just a 2D drawing program
       Menus are set up on all four sides of screen

       Many icons will match between Inventor and

        AutoCAD
       As in Inventor, AutoCAD allows use of both left

        and right mouse buttons, although what pops up
        on menus may be worded differently for the some
        functions

                   Engineering Drawings

       Drawing
       Borderline and Title Block
       Borderline – Space outside left blank so details are

        not lost if the edge of the drawing is torn
       Title Block – Information about who did the

        drawing, when it was done, where it was saved

                   AutoCAD Title Block

    For each drawing that you turn in, you will need to
    insert a borderline and title block
    After creating the figure for Lesson 2, save and
    close the Lesson 2 figure (GuidePlate) and use
    AutoCAD to draw a borderline and title block using
    the dimensions on page 10-21 (Inventor)
    Make overall size 10x7.5 Adjust the sizes in the
    titleblock
    Save this on your own disk as TitleBlock

                   AutoCAD Title Block

     STEPS
       Complete the drawing

       Go to Layout 1

          Click OK when the window pops up
       Use the Insert Command [INSERT]

          Browse and Select the file “TITLEBLOCK” from
           your disk
          Select Explode the Title Block (so you can edit)
       Use the Edit Command to change the text [ED]

AutoCAD 2004 – Lesson 2
   Work through the lesson at your own pace
   Ask questions as they come up
   Once the Guide Plate is drawn and saved then draw the
   TITLEBLOCK,
   Insert the TITLEBLOCK on the GuidePlate drawing and do
   Print Preview. If everything is OK, print the drawing with the
   part and title block, print it and turn it in.
   Think about what you are doing while you follow the steps.
   Goal - be able to draw without the book!!
