2D polyline to a surface

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have created a series of splined lines into a polyline (pedit) which I want to extrude. When I extrude the polyline I only get an extruded polyline and not a surface. I need to create a mesh or make the surface a face to extrude to make a solid. I have not used AutoCad for some years and have forgotten how to do this. I know that I am making an incorrect procedure here somehow. Can anyone give me some help or steer me into the correction.

 

Thank you,

If your polyline is a closed one, the result of its extrusion will be directly a solid. Can you post a sketch of what you are looking to achieve?

Welcome back, and to CADTutor. :)

You might want to try the PRESSPULL command, which is a bit more forgiving than the EXTRUDE command.

 

As Mircea mentioned, if you can start with a CLOSED polyline Extrude will generate a 3D Solid.
