Hill drawing with reference to contour 2d drawings?
Can you post an image of what you are trying to do and explain a little further?
I HAVE A CONTOUR DRAWING IN AUTOCADD FORMAT, WHICH HAVE ONLY CONTOUR LINES. SO I WANT TO DRAW HILL, CLIF ETC FROM CONTOUR DRAWING? IN INVENTOR
Ok I know of one way to do this but it will require several steps.
1. Start a 2D sketch on a plane in Inventor.
2. Find the AutoCAD DWG icon on the command bar when in sketch mode. This will allow you to import your 2D autocad drawing.
3. Extrude as a surface, each individual line to the height you need to create a slope like effect when looking from the side.
4. In the 3D model tab, there is a "face" command under the free form section. Use that to start creating your flat face of the hill.
If you want even more detail, you can do a 2D sketch on the planes I told you to extrude to different heights and draw in the sloes and what they should be on each. as well. Then you'd select your 2D sketches.
If this does not work. Let me know.
i cant understand the process. Please give me the snap shots for any contour example.
if you have the curves and you want a model use the command "Loft"
if you have a model and you want the curves for a view like a hill on a map then use the command "Slice" (can be found at "Place Views" - "Modify")
If you can line up the 2D contour drawing (say on the XY Plane) with the corresponding elevation plot (on the YZ or XZ plane), create a 3D sketch and use the "Intersection Curve" command to create the actual profile curves. Then use the Loft command, as AnMay suggests, to create the surface model from the profile curves. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Hope this helps and have a most blessed night!
