How to design a M10 Hex Nut using Autodesk Inventor 2020

1 5 Beginner
In this tutorial i will be showing how to create a M10 Hex Nut using Autodesk Inventor 2020.Normally people create a polygon followed by extruding it and later creating a hole of 10 mm to design one, but that is not enough.We need to do the following steps of creating a polygon, extruding it, create a taper of 45 degree on the top and bottom surface followed by creating a hole and later threading it. Another issue noticed in Autodesk Inventor 2020 is that the thread created on the surface is not the real thread and is just a texture map.Hence we will show you on how to create an actual thread.
