Twist Drill (Autodesk Inventor 2012)

Twist Drill (Autodesk Inventor 2012)
In this part modeling tutorial of ‘Autodesk Inventor’ we will create a model named ‘Twist Drill ’. We will start our work by extruding a circle. Then create some user defined work pales 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 video is to show the usage of user defined work planes with precision and usage of circular pattern tool to save time.
