iTwist Drill (Autodesk Inventor 2013)

iTwist Drill

Serial No. 210

iTwist Drill (Autodesk Inventor 2013)
In this part modeling tutorial of ‘Autodesk Inventor’ we will create a model named ‘iTwist Drill ’. We will start our work by defining some User Parameters that will be used to create mathematical relation between the dimensions applied in the due course of modeling the ‘Twist Drill’.

Parameters used in iTwist Model with Autodesk Inventor
Then we will create a circle and extrude it. Next we will create some user defined work planes at specified spots. These planes will be used to draw some more sketches, to be used as base profile for cutting flute (rounded grove) over the round bar. Then a coil feature and an extrude feature with a cut operation will be applied to create flute. Then using a circular pattern tool we will duplicate the same at an angle of 180°. Next we will create some sketch profiles to cut lip and lip relief on the edge of drill bit. The process will be the same as applied earlier. Later more coil feature will be applied to complete the model.

The highlight of the videos is the after creating the model with full parameters the iPart creation of the model is also displayed.
