So If I just import the DWG, use "Copy Existing Geom" to make a sketch, and then extrude it, it works fine. However if I scale the curves down to the appropriate size (.25) there are sorts of discontinuities. Any suggestions? I like the idea of extruding the intial sketch and then scaling that down, but I couldnt figure out how to do that without scaling my whole part. Thanks for all the input guys.
Perhaps try a different approach?
Having used Copy Existing Geometry to make your sketch (which seems to be a valid section) use the Bounded Plane command to create a surface (requires a closed section). You can then scale this surface and use it to drive your Extrude section.
I found a solution! I scaled up my body to match the size of the imported DWG, used "copy existing geometry" to make the sketch, uxtruded the sketch, then scaled the body back down to normal size. Thanks for the help though everybody
