Q - question

iMike - a configurable 3D person for Inventor.

A - answer iMike is a configurable figure of a man for Autodesk Inventor where you can use it for ergonomic designs or just to enhance your scenes. In the 3D subassembly iMike.iam, using the embedded Excel sheet you can pick the size (type) of the person and its parameters (after you change them, close Excel and hit the Update button in Inventor). Individual joints of the model are constrained, you can move his legs, turn his head or even raise his sunglasses...

For a better display quality you may want to switch off edge display (Tools/Options/Display/Active - Display edges).
