The paper presents an Inventor-based technique for designing an electric driven reduction gear for anchor and mooring winches. The technique consists in a parametric design so that the final product to be automatically model in correlation with input parameters. For that, simple logical rules are used in order to define and use the parameters and properties of the designed model through iLogic programming language which is included in Autodesk Inventor package. A iLogic rule can be considered as a short Visual Basic program created and used to automatically monitor and control, as Inventor objects, the model parameters values depending on input data. The aim of this is to extend and consolidate the capacity and automation of designing tasks. The iLogic rules may be incorporated directly in Inventor files or may be externally saved in order to be accessed by any files of the designing software packages.
