    Using excel macro point plotter, cant extrude plotted line

    Desmond Murray

      I am using the excel macro linked below to plot a line from a set of co-ordinates.

      Re: Use Macros to Import Points from Excel


      I have been trying to extrude this line to a defined thickness so that i can save it as an .IGS file to import in to ANSYS Workbench.

      When I try to extrude it I get the following error:


      The sketch has not been updated because solving it would result in invalid geometry(such as a zero length line)

      Consider: Deleting the invalid Geometry

                       Changing the relations or dimensions.


      As far as I am aware there is no invalid geometry. There is no repeating points and it is a closed curve(The line I have plotted is an airfoil).
