Cut a part with an another which is moving...


I've got two parts. To stay simple: a grounded part (ex.: a square) and a rotating part (ex.: a disk - the axe of rotation is extrentric).
When the disk is rotating, there are collisions with the square.

I would like to cut the square with the rotating disk. (My problem is more complex than that, it's juste an example).

Is there a way to compute the result part in Inventor, please?

Note: I saw that in a video of presentation of Inventor (a bottle was rised up with two special rollers of a conveyor: the shape of the roller was computed by the shape of, I think, a plastic bottle/parfum, etc.).

Thank you for your time.
