Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures - part 1
Estimated Time Required to Complete: 45 minutes
In This Exercise
In this skill building exercise you will explore the creation of a simple Sheet Metal Punch iFeature. After you have completed thisexercise you should understand:The steps required to create a family of simple Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures which can be used to cut material from sheet metalparts of different material thicknesses.The similarities (and differences) between Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures and “regular” iFeatures.
Workflow Overview
To complete this exercise you will:Download and open a zip file containing a sheet metal part.Extract the cut feature from the source part and save it as a Sheet Metal Punch iFeature capable of making cuts of several sizes inother sheet metal parts of various thicknesses.
Prerequisites
Prior to working this exercise you should:Have Inventor R2008 installed.Understand how to open, create and save part and sheet metal part files in your active project. If you have not completed the
Building Sheet Metal Parts
tutorial supplied with Inventor you should do that before working this skill builder (from the Inventor Helpmenu select Tutorials, then select
Building Sheet Metal Parts
from the
Basics
portion of the tutorials launch pad).Understand sheet metal part styles including material and thickness.Download (and unzip) the zip file containing the source file that will be used during this exercise.

The part contains the cut feature which will be used to create the Sheet Metal Punch iFeature.
Sheet Metal Punch iFeature Overview
Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures are named collections of Autodesk Inventor features that can be placed in sheet metal part models torepresent the result of a punching operation.Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures are not models of the physical punch (and die) used to create a particular end result on a sheet metalpiece part. To create a Sheet Metal Punch iFeature you will not model the punch and die tooling shown in the above illustration.While it is possible to create a Sheet Metal Punch iFeature that represents a single size feature it is much more likely that you will definea family of punches that create various sized features which are identified by a “key” dimensional value. While Autodesk Inventor supports the creation of iFeatures which accept any value to drive the size of the resulting feature, Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures usuallyrepresent physical tooling and are frequently created using a limited set of listed values that represent stock tooling sizes.Creating a sketch that behaves predictably requires fully constrained geometry with dimensions, dimensions driven by parameters andgeometric constraints.The sketches used to define Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures must also contain a center point. The sketch center point is used to define theposition of the punch during placement within the part model. It will automatically position the punch over corresponding unconsumedcenter points on visible sketches within the sheet metal part.

This center point requirement is one way that a Sheet Metal Punch iFeature differs from a “regular” iFeature. In addition to all of theinformation that is required by a “regular” iFeature, Sheet Metal Punch iFeatures can also contain:A site-specific Punch ID designation that can be used on your drawings to identify specific tooling in your shop’s tool inventory.A simplified sketch that can be used to represent the punch on drawings in the event that the complete geometric representationwould unnecessarily complicate the drawing.A custom depth designation that would be used primarily during the drawing annotation of formed punch features of coined or stamped features.The fields for these additional parameters are enabled on the Extract iFeature dialog when the Sheet Metal Punch iFeature radio buttonis selected.Creating a Sheet Metal Punch iFeature which uses this additional data will be covered in a separate skill building exercise.Let’s begin!
Open and Examine the Supplied Source File
1. Open the punch01_source.ipt file included in the downloaded zip file. The part contains a cut feature on the single face. As can beseen, there is a sketch located under the cut feature.
