Problem with extruding 2D Shape in Inventor



  1. Step 1:

    right click on sketch > edit sketch

  2. Step 2:

    you will notice that you can move the lines apart (no constraints) so click on them and move them apart a little bit to able to choose the end points.

  3. Step 3:

    activate the coincident constraint commend

  4. Step 4:

    click on end points to join them.

  5. Step 5:

    your final result should be fully constrained, if you try to move any line the whole tingle will be moved.

  6. Step 6:

    Ready to extrude!

    Hey mine is closed and constrained. There are apparently a gazillion reasons for this problem. Sometimes the loop intersects other loops. Is it possible that i upload/share/send my file and some angelic soul may tell me why can't i extrude ?
    I would be soo grateful.
