  • Description: Import 2D AutoCAD geometry into an Inventor part file and use the sketch geometry to create 3D solids.

    Two 3D solid bodies are created in a part file. The two bodies are then exported into an assembly as individual parts.

    The assembly is converted to a weldment, and a 3D weld bead is added to the assembly.

      I like this. Will need to play with it some to see additional value.
      Thanks for the example.
