Hi All,

I'm having an issue with trying to get a 2d sketch (.dxf) from Autocad extruded in SW2010.  I did check on this forum for some past related threads concerning this and have tried some of the responses, but still cannot get it to extrude.  I'm getting the common "cannot perform the extrude feature due to geometric conditions".  I must have overlapping lines or lines not extended / intersecting somewhere (but not sure where).  This is always a pain when trying to burn something like this in my flamecut software and appears to be the same in SW.  Is there something in SW that will check and show me WHERE the problem area is on the sketch so I can zoom in and fix it?  I can successfully extrude the perimeter to a solid with no cutouts but when I select the whole thing in the contour box to put the cutouts in the shape, I get the error.  See attached screenshots.  I've also attached the .sldprt.  Thanks!
