    Default Trouble extruding a cornice profile

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I'm having trouble extruding a profile i have created. Get "Cannot sweep or extrude a self-intersecting curve" error. I have used the overkill command to find any duplicate lines. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Trying to extrude along a straight line.

    Does presspull work?
    But I think I would fix this loop.

    Also I dimensioned this thing in inches and metric and the dimensions don't make sense to me (not manufacturable).

    thank you, i found the lines right after posting the question. Also what do you mean by dimensioned? its is a cornice profile so if it was extruded it would form the finished positive shape; it is to be made by bench running plaster.

    If I dimension the profile the lines do not come out to measureable, logical values like 1 inch, instead coming out to something like 1.2345678
