This is the first in a two-part Skill Builder series which explore iParts. A subsequentSkill Builder will address table-driven feature suppression, and using Microsoft Excelto edit the table.
iParts - The Basics
Creating a basic iPart
(Inventor R2008)Estimated Time Required to Complete: 25 minutes
In This Exercise
In this Skill Builder, you create and edit a standard iPart. In this exercise you learn how to:Create a table-driven part.Distinguish the difference between standard and custom iParts.Use the tabs in the iPart Author dialog box.Use keys to simplify use in an assembly.
Workflow Overview
Download the file simple_handle_iPart.zipExtract the file simple_handle_iPart.ipt
Prerequisites
Have Inventor R2008 or R2009 installed.Understand how to open, create and save part files in your active project.Download (and unzip) the zip file containing the source file to use during this exercise.
Download
simple_handle_ipart.zip 
(zip - 40Kb)
The zip file contains an Autodesk Inventor 2008 part file named simple_handle_iPart.ipt.

The part file contains two sketches to create the iPart.
iPart Overview
Most designers have parts that may differ by size, material, or other variables, but the same design works in many models. You cancreate these designs as iParts, and then use one or more of the variations. Since each table entry creates a unique part, you can usedifferent configurations of the same iPart in an assembly.You use the iPart Author to create part families that contain a table. For standard iParts, each iPart variation is an iPart member, whichis defined by a row in the table. When placing the part in an assembly, select the row (member) needed.iParts can also be used to represent assemblies by constructing a simplified table-driven part such as the caster in the following image.It has multiple wheel sizes and mounting configurations. By using feature suppression one mounting configuration can use holes, whileanother can use slots.Another important aspect of creating iParts is creating sketches that behave predictably. It requires fully constrained geometry withdimensions, dimensions driven by parameters and geometric constraints.

If dimensions are given parameter names or you create User Parameters, Inventor automatically adds them to the table when you createan iPart. If the dimensions are left in their “natural” state as model dimensions (d0, d1, d2 and so on) you must manually add them to thetable.
