Q - question

Two methods for creating Inventor 3D models from 2D views.

A - answer The CAD video section on this web site illustrates two methods for making a 3D model of a part from 2D views in a DWG drawing (front, side, top views). Videos use the Czech version of Inventor.

The first video describes the manual process of part modelling from sketches imported from a DWG drawing file.

The second video illustrates the usage of Inventor add-on tool - "2D to 3D Tool" (from Autodesk Labs). This tool simplifies modelling of a 3D part from individual views, which can be read from an existing DWG file made in AutoCAD or AutoCAD Mechanical.
