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

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > 3D Entities > Extrude.
    • Type extrude and then press Enter.
  2. Select the entity to extrude.
  3. Select the extrusion path, or specify the height.



Select the entity to extrude (A) and the extrusion path (B).

The resulting extruded solid.
