    Merging sketches (like illustrator can)

    Jonas Samson

      Hi Guys,

       

      I'm struggling with a SW problem for quite some time now.

       

      I need to extrude text. Sometimes letters overlap. SW does not extrude overlapped sketches (as far as i know of).

      The process of creating text and then extruding needs to be automated. So manually selecting the contours to extrude is not going to work here.

       

      Is it possible to firstly dissolve the text, thus the text becomes an editable sketch, and then merge the overlapping part?  I don't want to trim the sketch, because this can't be automised.

       

      Thanks
