From what I can see, Inventor does not have the ability to extrude along a path other than normal to the sketch plane. Is this true? Do we really have to go to the trouble of setting up working planes and then sketching on them? Other cad programs have had the ability to extrude along a defined path (edge, or axis, or line) for a long time. Please tell me that Inventor is not this primitive.
