Extrude command in cimatron

Extrude a closed sketch / composite curve on one or both sides, to the closest face according to the chosen direction.

Note: This option is only available for Add Extrude. The resultant object will be added to the active object. (If only one object exists in the file it is automatically active unless manually deactivated.) See Activate / Deactivate and Activating Objects


Required Step 1

Pick the entity to be extruded (pick a closed 2D composite curvesketch or face).



  • If you enter Extrude immediately after creating a closed 2D composite curve or sketch, the entity is automatically included in Step 1.
  • If you select a sketch that contains more than one closed curve sequence, all closed curve sequences will be extruded. In order for a sketch to be selected, however, it must contain only closed curve sequences.

Required Step 2

Choose One Side if you want to extrude on one side of the contour. The default direction is normal to the 2D contour or sketch plane. You can flip the direction by clicking the arrow head or body, or you can click on the arrow origin to set another direction.

Toggle One Side to Both Sides to extrude to the closest faces on either side.

Use the Invert Active Object option as required.

Press exit when finished. Or, if this is the final result, press OK  or Apply  in the Feature Guide to complete the function.
