Hej to all

I need a big help, I have a part, but i need now is the negative of that
part.
This part have a few channels inside and I need the volume of the channels,
in other words, i need to have in 3d the channels and all the other paths. I
need the empty shapes in my part to became a solid.
How can i do this?

Thanks to all.

You didn't state what version of Inventor you are using.
You didn't post example file here.

2010 Combine with cut

earlier - Derived Component with Split or Sculpt.

Results of 2010:

1. Extrude a new body over the entire part.
2. Using the new Solid 2 as the Base, Combine - intersect using the
original Solid 1 as the Toolbody.

Result is as shown.

3. Use Delete Face (Lump) to remove any unwanted geometry.

Wonderful answer, but now cames the next question, how did you made the
solid over the 1 solid?
but that is exactly what I want.
