Punch Tools

Hi All,

Can anyone offer a link or advice on how to create one's own punch tool.

Best Rgds,

RE: Punch Tools

Hi All,

Sorry I meant to tell you that I'm using Inventor Pro 2011.

RE: Punch Tools

Create a Face.
Start a new sketch on the face and delete any auto-projected geometry.
Place a sketch point for locating the punch tool.
Continue creating features as needed.
Publish iFeature (as Punch).

Post your file here when you get stuck.


RE: Punch Tools

Hi rollupswx & mcgyvr,

Got it!! I was going wrong in two places - Not putting a centre point and not using the Insert IFeature on the Manage tab.

My next question is on Dies - see my next post.

Best Rgds,

Dave R
