Explode Text to Sketch

Hi,

 

Is it possible to convert Text to a sketch in which I can edit individual letters. I want to use the text as a profile path for a plasma cutter. I tried Emboss, but Letters with islands in them, completely cut the letter out. I want to be able to add a bridge for one of a better word, by editing a sketch. Any Suggestion Welcome.

 

Regards

 

Greg

The only fast way is to dxf or dwg out your part and insert it into autocad to and tabs to the letters. Inventor does not use regular text it uses a bitmap for text so there is really good way to do it in just Inventor.

 

The really only way to do it in Inventor is to add the tabs with extrude. Not the fastest way. Look at sample.
