Extrusion Properties

For any properties not shown below, see Setting Object Properties.





Distance from the ground to the bottom of the object.

Size of the extrusion’s top.  A value of 0 will cause the top of the extrusion to be the same size as the bottom.


Smooth the extrusion sides. Uncheck this option for a faceted look.

Add caps

Add caps to the top and bottom of the extrusion. Caps can only be added if the extrusion is a closed shape.


Connect the last point to the first, forming a closed shape.

Edit points

Enable or disable point editing mode, which will allow you to modify the shape. See Editing Points for details.

Shape options

Save the current shape or load a new one. For more details, see Saving and Loading Shapes.
