Creating extruded solids
You can create three-dimensional solids by extruding closed entities, such
as polylines, polygons, circles, ellipses, closed splines, donuts, and regions.
You can extrude the entity along a selected path, or you can specify its height
and taper angle.
To create an extruded solid
- Do one of the following:
Select the entity to extrude.
Select the extrusion path, or specify the height.
- Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Extrude.
- Type extrude and then press Enter.
Select the entity to extrude (A) and the extrusion path (B).
The resulting extruded solid.
