I have imported a 3d curve into Design Modeller... I need to create an extrusion of it... But it doesnt seem to happen.. It's only letting me extrude sketches.. Its basically an airfoil that I've imported... Is there any other way of doing it? I tried importing points as well... Even that doesnt seem to work... Any suggestions?? Thanks in advance...

I think its not possible to extrude the thing u needed by DM, indeed u can do it by catia, have u heard about Capricat - its a interface between catia and DM, just import the curve in catia extrude it , then using capri interface u can get it in Design Modeler DM

hmm yeah.. but then i need to do the entire thing in workbench cuz i'll be writing a script for it.. Thats why i'm having trouble it...

If so just start a new session of DM -> go to the sketching menu and make a few random points -> then go back to the modelling menu on the tree and pick the sketch -> then go to the file menu on the bar and then "write script: sketches of active plane". It should produce you a javascript file that shows you what you've done in that sketching session. You can then edit the javascript to match the points want to add.

There is a good example of what to next with these points in the DM manual -> Scripting API -> Features example.

In other words...RTFM :D:p
