How to extrude CAD drawings

Modified on Thu, 20 Oct 2022 at 02:46 PM

With the Extrude tool, you can create a 3D mesh surface from a curve.

Launch the Extrude window from the sidebar.


  • Curves can be extruded in the X, Y, or Z directions.
  • Extrude length specifies the length of the extrusion. You can use negative values to extrude in the opposite direction.


You can control the level of detail of the extruded object. 

The Distance method subdivides curves into equal-sized edges, where the distance parameter controls the length of these edges. 

With the Count method, curves are subdivided into a maximum number of count edges. Polylines are not subdivided.

Select one or more curves and press the Extrude button.
