I have a template part that contains several planes with sketches on it.
On one of these sketches I need a projection from another sketch by rotating it on some axis.
To accomplish this I used a Revolve feature in combination with a Project Cut Edges.
So in fact making a solid. But because this is a template I do not really need the solid so I set Visibility off.
But in my FEA analysis this solid is causing contacts and it shows up in the simulation result.
I would like to get rid of this solid.
So how can I project from one sketch (on some plane) to another sketch (on another plane) by rotating around some axis? Is that possible without creating a solid?
I hope someone has some good advice.
Note that I can not attach the files here because of IP issues.
Thanks in advance.
For the FEA analysis, are you using Inventor Professional or Simulation Mechanical?
In Simulation Mechanical, you can just suppress the construction part by right-clicking it in the browser and choose the suppress command.
I don't know how to suppress parts in inventor. What I can think for you is to use the 3D model > Surface > Eelete Face tool and use the select lump or void option.
