Inventor Terms 1

Inventor CAD Software Vocabulary

Arrays Patterns of duplicated features. Inventor allows you to create both rectangular and polar (circular) features.
Assembly Constraints Constraints that control the relationships between parts in an assembly drawing.
Balloon A small circle on the assembly drawing that contains a number which corresponds to a part number given on the parts list.
Base Component The first component in an assembly, on which all other components are based.
Bill of Materials A table that contains information about the parts within an assembly, including information such as part names, quantities, costs, vendors, and all other information to related to building the part.
Boolean Operations Solid modeling operations based on Boolean mathematics. In inventor, the three operations are join, cut, and intersect.
Center Point The point at which the three work axes meet.
Concentric Sharing a common center point.
Constraints Limits or restrictions that are placed on geometry to define the exact shape and size of a solid model.
Cut A boolean operation in which the volume of one solid model is subtracted from the volume of another solid.
Cutting Plane The path along which the section is taken for a section view.
Detail Drawing A drawing for a single part that includes all the dimensions, notes, and information needed to make that part.
Dimensional Constraints Constraints that are used to describe the size and location of individual geometric shapes.
Exploded Assembly An assembly model that shows all the parts of the assembly and how they fit together. The various parts are shown in their correct alignment (as much as possible) but slightly apart so that their relationships are obvious.
Extruding Giving depth to a 2D sketch to create a 3D model.
Feature-based parametric modeling The process of building a solid model by adding simple features one at a time in such a way that they can be changed at any time.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
