Re: Altering a BASE Part? Modeling failure in ASM?

10-04-2012 07:59 AM in reply to: JDMather

I have now added a quality check upon import and I get a message "could not import object". The part view that you have with all the seperated base parts never gets shown for me either. I can extrude on the side of the part with the circular feature, but i can't extrude on the side with the retangular feature in the lower section.

Hmm.

I opened the part with 2009 SR SP2 Build:550, copied the base to CE, unstitched, and did a quality check without any errors.

 

And I could do both adding or substracting extrusion on the face shown at the picture.

 

File added.

Hmmm

 

Try an extrution of 16.88mm in the same location. Thats where I get the error message.

Meanwhile I noticed it. I've tried some other ways, but I'm struggling with 2009, too. A newer version surely will do that better.

Can you zip and attach the original file here - I would like to use this one as a Repair lesson in my class today.

Meantime - I see that document I linked earlier is no longer avialable - try this http://home.pct.edu/~jmather/AU2008/ML205-1P%20Mather.pdf

 

 

Also - I should point out that that list of issues Inventor returned was on the part as a single part rather than as multi-body solids that it really is.  When I unstitched Quality Check did not return any issues.  Of course it doesn't run quality check on stuff that isn't (but should be) there - the missing surfaces.

Please mark this response as "Accept as Solution" if it answers your question.

Inventor 2010 has introduced multibody parts; it's easier then.

 

But if you want a cutting extrusion, just extend the short sides of the sketch over the part's contour. After that it's extruding in 2009, too.
