Inventor 101: Shell Command and Model Tree Planes


There are often many different methods you can take in the CAD design process to reach the same end part design. Some are faster and more efficient than others, as we’ll learn in this Inventor 101 video. More specifically, this video takes a look at the advantages that the shell command poses in it’s ability to quickly transform an extrusion into a shelled part, taking into consideration existing features of the geometry. It will also look at how you can then use origin planes to further simplify the design process. Check it out below.
