Technical What’s New Autodesk® Inventor™ 2009 - Removing Barriers to Productivity

With over two hundred separate enhancement projects in the release, the Autodesk Inventor 2009 product line addresses three key themes: working on larger designs, enabling more innovation and working with other people’s data. Within each theme we’ve outlined the key enhancements so you can focus on those that will have the biggest impact on your operations.

Working on Larger Designs Digital prototypes of large scale designs such as industrial plant, specialty vehicles, or modern transportation systems demand the ability to construct and manage large assemblies which can run up to tens or even hundreds of thousands of parts. Inventor 2009 introduces native 64 bit support which removes the memory barriers associated with the Windows XP 32 bit platform. Together these two factors facilitate the design of architecture so working with large digital prototypes won’t slow you down. Native 64 bit removes 3GB limitations and support PCs with more RAM• Component substitution provides reduced memory representations of complex sub-assemblies• Performance optimization – including start up, shut down, and many modeling operations•

Enabling More Innovation Improvements to the sketching, design accelerators, part design, and sheet metal simplify the design workflows while enhanced simulation tools give you the power to explore more design options and evaluate performance and efficiency without building physical prototypes. Easy to use simulation tools integrated with the design workflow• Advanced sheet metal functionality that incorporate manufacturing factors into the 3D model• Smart pipe runs with new support for hygienic pipe standards•

Working with Other People’s Data In today’s world of integrated supply chains, designers increasingly need to work with 3D data from customers and suppliers. Avoid the time-consuming difficulties of working with data provided through “neutral” formats by reading data directly from the original or native formats.

Welcome to Inventor 2009

Autodesk Inventor 2009 offers significant increases in productivity especially in the core design tools that you use every day. We’ve listened to many people as we put this release together and many of the improvements are a direct result of your input. Inventor 2009 is easier to use and more powerful than ever, providing a more accurate digital prototype so you can understand how your design will perform before you build it.

We hope this will help you to analyze the new features so you can focus on those that will have the biggest impact on your operations.

The Inventor Team

Sheet Metal Design The Inventor 2009 product line is designed to simplify the design of a large range of widely used sheet metal constructs by providing accurate digital prototypes that faithfully represent the as-manufactured part including such details as corner relief geometry, sheet metal fasteners, and bend conditions calculated from both linear equations and empirical bend tables. Bend tables are now incorporated in revised sheet metal styles that are fully integrated with the Inventor Styles system. These changes make it easier to define and manage sheet metal styles to reflect actual material, gauge, and manufacturing variables used within the selected manufacturing facility. Building on the drawing automation introduced with Inventor 2008, Inventor 2009 introduces punch notes that accurately document the punch data in manufacturing drawings as well as new options that support the documentation of flat pattern extents.

Corner Relief & Corner Seam Override Quickly create complex flanged parts in very few steps and with a much smaller feature tree. The Flange and Contour Flange tools provide new direct manipulation capabilities so you can apply overrides to individual corner seams and corner reliefs in multi-edge flanges and contour flanges. Corner relief options support shape and size overrides and corner seam options support overlap type, gap value, and overlap percentage¹. With fewer features and new direct manipulation glyphs (icons) that are revealed automatically in both create and edit modes, Inventor 2009 sheet metal parts are easier to build, easier to understand, and easier to modify.

Technical What’s New

¹Overlap percentage applies to flanges only.

Large Radius Bends Create accurate geometry in the presence of large radius bends. Flange, contour flange, and corner seam features generate miters with a consistent gap along the length of the seam for large radius bends. This is facilitated by a new corner relief shape called Arc Weld.

Contour Flange Mid-Plane Offset Option Reduce the time required to create complex contour flanges. The Contour Flange has a new offset option that treats the contour profile as the mid-plane. When this option is selected, material is created on both sides of the contour profile.

Sheet Metal Styles Set up and share sheet metal styles for different materials and sheet gauges. Import bend data from Bend Table Definition Files and manage with the Inventor Styles Editor. With Inventor 2009, sheet metal styles are fully integrated into the Inventor Styles framework. Sheet metal styles information is divided into Sheet Metal Rules and Sheet Metal Unfold Rules.

The new Sheet Metal Rules define the bend and • corner relief options that govern the design and behavior of sheet metal parts.

The new Sheet Metal Unfold rules capture your • commonly utilized unfolding methods and allow you to publish them to Inventor's style library. Sheet Metal Unfold rules can be created for both linear and bend table based unfolding methods. Enhancements in Inventor 2009 allow you to import and visualize legacy bend tables, edit them natively within the Style and Standard Editor and publish them as either .xml files for use within Inventor's style library, or as .txt files for use in legacy versions of Inventor.

Enhanced Corner Seam Impose precise control over corner seem gaps to insure correlation between gap value entered and manufacturing inspection processes. The new maximum gap condition (Max. Gap Distance) maintains a constant gap along the seam to improve the quality of seam welds. Use the new Overlap options to control percentage overlap between the dominant and submissive flanges.

As with the enhanced Flange and Corner Flange tools, the Corner Seam tool supports large radius bend plate cases, arc weld corner reliefs, and overlap adjustment.

Sheet Metal Fasteners Insert PEM brand fasteners, including self-clinching nuts, pressed nuts, standoffs, and studs into sheet metal designs. The Content Center has a new category of sheet metal content containing a large selection of frequently used PEM brand sheet metal fasteners. The new content can be utilized in sheet metal assemblies through enhancements to the Bolted Connection and AutoDrop tools.

Technical What’s New iPart Authoring for Sheet Metal Parts Create families of related sheet metal parts. In addition to variations found in standard iParts, Sheet Metal iParts have the ability to reference Sheet Metal Rules and Sheet Metal Unfold Rules. By referencing these into iPart members, you can easily create a family of parts that represent the geometry to support the manufacturing capabilities of different suppliers.

Sheet Metal iParts now include both the folded and flat pattern models so that you can create iPart members with different flat pattern characteristics. For example, you can specify different flat pattern orientations or clean up features for each member of the iPart family.

Named Flat Pattern Orientations Associate different flat pattern orientations with different members of an iPart factory.

Create multiple flat pattern orientations each with its own origin, orientation, and flip direction and save each with a different name. Then designate the right flat pattern orientation for each member in the iPart factory.

Flat Pattern Drawings Quickly create flat pattern views of different iPart members irrespective of the saved state of the sheet metal iPart. You can select specific members of sheet metal iParts – or the active member – when placing flat pattern views into Inventor drawings. The flat pattern will be drawn based on the named orientation defined in the iPart table.

Technical What’s New

Quality Improvements Automatic Mitering of Disconnected Edges Create mitered multi-edge planar flanges with the Flange and Contour Flange tools – including cases where the flanges are separated by seams or even preexisting bends.

Bend Angle Definition Change the way bend angles are reported in drawing manager and manufacturing applications that use the API. A new tab appears in the Flat Pattern definition dialog that allows you to select either the bending angle or the complementary open angle.

ASM Simple Tearing Model faces orthogonal to bend plates without a separation notch.

Drawing Manager Enhancements to the Drawing Manager deliver increased productivity to simplify and streamline the process of producing the drawings required by manufacturing teams.

Crop View Quickly crop views in the drawing when you need to show one side of a symmetrical part or where you only need to show a small part of a larger part or assembly. The new Crop View tool supports rectangular, circular, and polygonal crop windows and avoids the need to use the breakout tools. To use polygonal crop windows, simply create a view sketch and draw the required polygon. The crop sketch supports sketch constraints so you can define the position of the crop window in relation to geometry in the view.

Automated Centerlines Select one or more views in the browser – or use the layout filters and window select – and use the Automated Centerlines tool to create centerlines automatically on multiple views. The Automated Centerline tool provides options to create centerlines for any combination of holes, fillets, cylindrical, and revolve features, as well as sheet metal bends and punch tools.

Punch Notes Add punch notes to sheet metal drawings when you don’t need a complete punch table. The punch note provides a quick and easy way to document punched shapes. And because the data is extracted from the punch ID, depth, direction, and angle parameters of the punch feature in the 3D model, punch notes will update whenever the punch feature is modified.

The appearance and format of the punch note is controlled through a new Punch Note style, and you can also include a <QTYNOTE> token to display the number of like punches in the pattern or in the part.

Technical What’s New

Flat Pattern Extent Properties A new sheet metal property type has been added which includes the length and width extents of flat patterns for use in drawing manager and manufacturing applications that use the API.
