Trying to extrude a mold cavity/core... but I get this note. "the sketch has no contour geometry."
you have a problem with your sketch.
while you are editing your sketch, select Tools menu - Sketch Tools - Check Sketch for feature
in the dialog box, select your feature ( Extrude, Boss Extrude or others) and click Check button.
A magnifier will show what's wrong.
If not solved, post your part file here.
Hope it helps
No contour geometry means to avoid it:
1. Check for over lapping in sketch one on another in same line or arc.
2. Check for whether the sketch is full closed or not.
3. Before extrude the sketch ensure that the sketch is unselected before extrude.

Attach your *.sldprt file here so that someone can tell you EXACTLY what is wrong with the sketch.
I don't see the icon to attach the file. How do I do that here? Typically there is a paper clip I can click.....
As was suggested, I checked the sketch and it says I have 12 open surfaces.... What do I do to reslove that?

Here it is Mr Mather....
Well, I was able to easily create your core/cavity mold, but I am using r2014, so I will have to walk you through the process.
Delete Sketch5 and the Shutoff surfaces (because of the fillets - your shut-offs are in wrong location).
Remove All Part Appearances so that the red and green colors are removed to make visualization of next steps easier.
Actually, the next steps will re-apply these appearances - but just so we are starting from the same baseline....
Start the Parting Line command and then select the Face shown to set Pull Direction.
Click Draft Analysis and then,
select the edges of the fillet as shown going all the way around the part.
Your Parting line must go all the way around without any gaps and should be on the edge of the fillet shown.
For your Shut-Offs, select the through hole fillet edges exactly as shown.
I have to go do my real job for a while - post your progress file here.
What happened to the ASAP? Was your assignment past due?
Making any progress?
The guy I replaced came back yesterday to give me some training. It's a bit confusing. So, I open an assembly, but can't do anything to it... So right click to edit the part. Then when you go to save, it changes assembly 1, assem2 assem3 assem4 each time I save.... I'm really green.... Comfortable with Surf-cam...
And to insert core pins. I need to make sure I have the file opened. Is that correct? Insert, and mate them into the core, or block, then.... Insert.... molds....cavity... (select the part model from the design tree?) To configure the pins?

I don't understand why you are opening an assembly - it is a part file?
Were you already successful with the steps I outlined above? (you never attached your progress)
They want to put it in a small readily available mold base. Tomorrow, I'll try at work to attach it, I'm am still experiencing some difficulties. We have the cavities in the plates, and the core for the part I sent. I put water in the core and that plate along with some k.o. pins today. I have some core pins in the plate with the cover cav. Now I need to re-install -molds- cav. to configure the end of the pins.... I really appreciate your help! Thank you!
