Converting 3D sketch to 2D sketch, from an igs file using wires

First we imported an ".igs" file to inventor, which produced "wires".  Then by promoting the wires it produced a 3-d sketch. 

 

The model is in one plane and 2-D, and we are trying to use Ansys 2-D analysis, but in-order to do so it needs to be in a 2-D sketch.

 

The model is too large to be redrawn on a 2-D plane, does anyone know how to convert it to a 2-D sketch

Hi,

 

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

But currently there is not a direct solution. The only workaround I can see here is to create a new 2D sketch and project the 3D curves to 2D.

 

I will pass on this requirements to our development team too.

I attached another zip file in my last reply; in the word document I described the workflow.

Please let me know if any further questions.

 

Again, thanks for your feedback.
