Hello Sankar,

An alternative is to build the composite layup on a surface like you have been doing, but instead of extruding the solid model, you can import a solid mesh of the finished part (with cut-outs and everything) and then map the composite layup on the solid mesh. You will find more information about this technique along with an example model in the help:


Let me know how it goes.
