Create a 2D axisymetric model from a 3D inventor file

I was wandering if you could import a 2D sketch into multiphysics from Inventor or Autocad. I normally import 3D models into multiphysics fro inventor but I want to model a fluid flow using a 2D sketch. Is there any way to use the 3D model to get this sketch or import a 2D sketch into multiphysics.

 

Thanks

I am not sure about AutoCAD, but if you are using inventor, I dont think that the Launch Active Model works for sketches. Instead, you might need to export it to some other format such as .dwg or .igs and open it from inside Multiphysics.

Thank you that worked. Do you were I can find tutorials for 2D simulations. Everything I have seen on autodesk website is 3D

The "Examples" section of the Help documentation contains a lot of 2D examples.
