NOTE
Inventor does the math for you if you need to calculate a value.

You can even use parentheses to build algebraic equations. For angles, you

can input degrees or even radians, using RAD for the unit.

FIGURE 3.8
Include factors in the dimension value, and Inventor will

calculate the value.

16.
Create a dimension from the left edge of the rectangle to the sketch

center. Edit the value; when the value appears, click the 32.000

dimension.

Doing so enters the dimension name of the 32.000 dimension into

the dialog. Inventor gives every dimension a name automatically. You

can rename any dimension using the Parameters tool on the Manage

tab, or you can enter a new value on the fl y. Dimension names can't

have spaces or special characters.

17.
In the Edit Dimension window, put the cursor before the dimension

name that was assigned when you selected the 32.00 dimension, and

type
half_width=
.
