Creating Curved Parts in Autodesk Inventor 2010

I wanted to CAD this robot (see attached), but was having difficulty creating the curved pieces.

I am using Autodesk Inventor Professional 2010.

Any help on how to create curved pieces would be greatly appreciated.


I have Inventor 2011 so this may be different in your version.

To bend or curve parts:

  1. Go into sketch mode.

  2. Draw a line where you want to bend the part.

  3. Exit Sketch mode.

  4. Right click on the part and click “Edit.”

  5. Go to “Modify” on the top bar and click it to get extended options. (On my version there is only one extended option and that’s “Bend Part”)

  6. Click “Bend Part” then click the line and specify radius, etc.

Hope this helps, and thanks for your help on my thread.

Thank you so much, jumper11! It works perfectly!

Awesome. Glad to help.

Thank you so much! I just was trying to figure that out and it worked great!

Great thanks
