Adding an Extrusion

Extrusions are a unique type of object that projects a 3D shape from a line. This line is drawn by placing points, and can be curved or straight, open or closed. Extrusions are useful for complex details that would be difficult to create with other tools.

To add an Extrusion:

1.   Click Add Extrusion.

2.   Draw the extrusion's outline by clicking to add points. Press Backspace to remove the last point. Press Esc to cancel. Press Enter to input the angle and distance manually.

3.   Click the starting point to close the outline. Or, right-click to complete the outline.

The following is an example of an extrusion.

Tips:

      After drawing your extrusion outline, you can edit the outline by clicking Edit points.

      When editing a curved extrusion outline, it is recommended to use the Bezier curve types for better control and accuracy.

      If the extrusion is not closed, then caps cannot be added.
