Re: inventor 2013 how to create this picture

Sure but, I am having problems zipping the file and it exceeds the limits of this forum and I have received a (flooding) message. 

To make an approximation of your drawing, what I had was to orphan, **** and overshoot the extrusions because of the increasing radius of the coil. The place Hole feature would not work!

If you would like to add me to your Drop box my email is freegoodkharma@yahoo.com or send me one or yours.

Yours truly,

Carl T.

Perhaps I do not need no stinking WinZip!  I will try again.

Yours truly,

I tried to open it but I am running 2013 maybe it was saved in newer format?

 

Thanks

I am sorry I miss understood your post.  I am using Inventor 14 and I see no way to save to an earlier format.  I am sure that you can accomplish the part with your current version.  The hard part is the sweep on the spiral.  Make the smaller extrusion on the end of the spiral then array, then make the larger extrusion on top of the other then array.  I just ignore the iErrors.

Yours truly,

Carl T.

If you had made the smaller circle at that end before the large circle should not get the error.

 

(the error is easily eliminated by using Extrusion3 for Rectangular Pattern11 rather then the unecessary duplicate hole, and delete that "hole")  (Extrusion6 could also be eliminated as it is a duplication, but you have other depenancies now that will cause error if deleted.)

 

I would have Coil a single line as a Surface body and Thicken rather than create a 3D sketch spiral, rectangle and Sweep.
