INVENTOR->DM (2D geometry)
is there a way how to import a 2D sketch from Inventor 12 into DesignModeler (Ansys 12.0) ? I can save the sketch in Inventor in .DWG or .DWF formats, but DesignModeler simply refuses to read them. Inventor also offers a solution saving the model in STEP, IGES formats but this works only for 3D models, not for sketches. I also tried Invetor Fusion for converting DWG to other formats, but again, it works fine only for 3D models.
Finally I solved it this way: I created 3D model in Inventor, then I imported it easily into DesignModeler a there I created 2D geometry. Using Create Surfaces from Egdes (Picture 1). It worked fine but is this the only solution?
However it worked fine in case of (Picture 1), but in (Picture 2) I'm not able to create 2D surface using a Surface from Edges and I can't even use Mid-Surface tool (some planes are not parallel). Is there a other way, how to create 2D surface for (Picture 2)?
Thanks in advance!
