Description

The Extrusion Object command will extrude a surface along an axis to create a 3-dimensional shape.

Options

Height

The amount of extrusion.

Sections

The extrusion will be divided into this many sections.

Axis

The axis along which the extrusion is performed.

Notes

  • Extrusion Object will work on a 3-dimensional shape such as a cube, but usually should be used on relatively flat non-closed shapes such as a polygons, line segments or grids.
  • Extruding an object that consists of faces will create a closed object (caps on the end), whereas extruding an object that consists of only edges (e.g. a line segment) will create an object that is open on the ends.
