Insert Surface And Extrude To it using Ilogic

Hi Everyone,

 

I’m a design engineer for a company that make press tooling to manufacture parts. I am trying to automate the design process using Ilogic. I know the basics but the part I’m having trouble with is importing a surface.

 

Our process is to 3D scan the part which then gets a surface from this and extrude up to the actual surface.

 

Is there any way in ilogic to automate this process. Ideally I would like it to come up with a browse button you select the surface file .stp or .iges. Once the surface is in the part file it extrudes up to the surface from a plane.

 

 

Any Ideas Anyone

 

Cheers

 

Chris

Thanks for the reply, the link you've sent is broken and chance of you posting another. It looks like it could be very useful.

I am not sure why the link changed. Currently it is:

In case you cannot still access, please go to the board (Autodesk Inventor) and search by "Extrude iLogic".
