Re: Surface Models - Convert to Solids

Hi JDM,

I was able to open the step file without any problem.  You are a champ.  I learned something today from you.  Good on you.  I wanted to understand your other option of using copy to construction and back to modelling.  How to do that?  Where is that icon to copy to construction.  I am using INV 2013.  I get lot of surface models and always struggle to convert them to solid.  I am looking for a training material or one of your goodies to know more about using 3d sketches and working with surfaces.

Thanks in advance.

I haven't installed 2013 yet, but I think the Construction Enviroment no longer exists and is now called the Repair Environment.  I think in your Application Options there is a setting to choose Inventor or Inventor Fusion as your Repair Environment.

You get into the Repair Environment by right clicking on the imported surface or solid body.

No, this is a Fusion 2013 defect.
