    You can extrude an object at any any 3D angle you need to look into UCS, you just create a new ucs draw object then extrude.

    I'm not certain I follow you BIGAL, I haven't tried adjusting the UCS to extrude. I've extruded at an angle by drawing a line into the z-axis and rotating it to the angle I want (or the line could be drawn to the angle you want) then extrude using the line as the path.

    Do you know how to reorient your UCS? Yes/No/What is a UCS?

    The UCS is one of the more complicated features of AutoCad remember.

    Yes, I remember. What is it that you are expecting me to do?

    I'll take a wild guess here and assume you want me to tell the OP how to manipulate the UCS.

    1) Manually...from the command line. Ex. - UCS > X > 90. Make sure your UCS icon is showing. UCSICON > On.
    2) Via the Ribbon. In a 3D Modeling workspace look on either the Home or View tabs for the Coordinate panel. Multiple choices for orienting the UCS icon are available.
    3) Allow/Disallow Dynamic UCS (F6 key to toggle). There is a button for this in the lower left-hand corner of your screen sandwiched between the ones for Object Snap Tracking and Dynamic Input.

    Attach 2d drawing representative of what you are trying to do.
    Perhaps Sweep is the easiest answer to your problem.

    Try to create a line at the angle you want to extrude and sweep the area with line set as path.

    Manipulating my UCS...not since I was a teenager.....er, oh, sorry,

    Yes, the UCS is our friend and if you're trying to do things in 3D it is highly recommended that you master this feature of AutoCAD. I was confused when I started with it too, and even today sometime I find that it takes me a couple of tries to get the rotation about the correct axis as I need it. But once I got this understood, the 3D world really opened up for me.
    It's deja vu, all over again.

    Default quick is good

    you might want to explore the UCS FACE icon on the UCS toolbar.
