Why Parametric Modeling?
Gateway To Technology® Unit 1 – Lesson 1.5 – Designing For Production Why Parametric Modeling? Determine the shape and size of the geometry at any time during the design process. This part should be 5 in. long, not 3 in. How can we fix this without redrawing it? Use the Autodesk Inventor software to demonstrate parametric modeling.

Why Parametric Modeling?
