Altering a BASE Part? Modeling failure in ASM?

HI All,

 

I brought in a STP file from a supplier. It opened it in Inventor (IV pro 2010), everything looks good. The file tree shows a number of BASE parts. The file has some unwanted geometry (removeable parts). I want to delete them. I was thinking I could Extrude (CUT) them away, but I keep getting errors. For instance "Extrusion could not be buit, Modeling failure in ASM, redefine input". Any ideas on how I could make this new IPT so I can delete some details of it?

Thanks

Bill

Thank You

Check your direction of your Extrussion/Cut. The software has been known to Flip the direction.

Do the parts pass quality check (green chechmarks)?

Can you attach the original file(s) here?

 

Does Delete Face with Heal option work?

Apparently the file is too large to upload.

Thank You

I tried the Delete face with Heal option. It seems to work, but there are so many faces it would take too long.

As I mentioned, I tried using the extrusion CUT on the part. Surprisingly it works in some areas of the part and not others. In certain areas I get the ASM error. In others it cuts fine. I tried using sketch planes and the part surface to place my sketch on for cutting. It just doesn't work for me in  certain places.

I can take a look if you send it to jmather_at_pct_dot_edu

I suspect that someone from Autodesk will also come along and express interest in the file.

Hi Bill,

 

JD is right; there could be a modelling bug here, so if it's possible to send us the part that would be great. If the file is too big to attach to this forum, it's possible to send it to us via Buzzsaw. If you don't have a Buzzsaw account, please drop me an email and I can arrange one for you.

 

Many thanks!
