## Degrees of Freedom glyphs reference

Illustrate the degrees of freedom available to geometry. Access In a sketch when no command is active, do one of the following: Select Show All Degrees of Freedom  from the status bar. Right-click the geometry, and select Display Degrees of Freedom. Translation  Points are constrained to move parallel to an axis, …

## Relax Mode

Select or deselect Enable Relax Mode in Ribbon: Sketch tab  Constrain Panel  Constraint Settings: Relax mode tab  to control the default behavior for Relax Mode. NOTE:You can also toggle Relax Mode On and Off from the status bar  or by pressing F11 in the 2D sketch environment. Relax Mode allows you to modify geometry and apply …

## Part dimension tolerance and properties

It is not possible to manufacture parts to exact dimensions. The closer to an exact size an item or feature must be manufactured, the more expensive it becomes. Conversely, the part may not function correctly if the tolerance range is too large. Depending on the type of part and its …

## Automatically dimension and constrain sketch

Use the Dimension command to add only the dimensions you need, then use the Automatic Dimensions and Constraints command to calculate all other sketch dimensions and constraints. On the ribbon, click Sketch tab  Constrain panel  Automatic Dimensions and Constraints .The Auto Dimension dialog box shows the number of dimensions and constraints required to fully …

On the ribbon, click Sketch tab  Constrain panel  Dimension  . In the graphics window, click the geometry to dimension. Click in the graphics window to place the dimension. In a 3D sketch, the dimension text is parallel to a plane created by the two selections. If the Edit Dimension option is enabled, the Edit …

## 3D equation curves reference

Creates a curve based on specified equations and range. Access Ribbon: 3D Sketch tab  Create Panel  Equation Curve  x(t) or r(t) Specify x or r as a function of t. For example x(t): t^2. y(t) or θ (t) or φ(t) Specify y or θ or θ as a function of t. For example, …

## Create 3D intersection curve

Click 3D Sketch tab  Create Panel  Intersection Curve to create a 3D curve. Use the curve to create shapes such as those used in consumer products, piping, and to control the shape of complex lofts. You can select: Faces, surfaces, or the entire part body 2D sketch curves Work planes On the ribbon, click 3D …

## 3D curves autodesk inventor

The following 3D sketch commands create curve geometry using specified values, or by projecting geometry: Helical Curve creates a 3D coil from parameters. Equation Curve creates a 3D curve from equations. Intersection Curve creates a 3D curve from intersecting geometry. Silhouette Curve creates a 3D curve at the outer boundary of a surface. Project …
