Optional Step 1
By default, an extrusion has no draft angle. In other words, it is a uniform prism; for example:
This step enables you to define a draft angle if required.
The following options/parameters are displayed:
|Draft Angle||This is a toggle option Draft Angle / None:
|Inside||This is a toggle option Inside / Outside:
|Draft Angle||Enter the required draft angle value. Note that if the angle is too large, the extrusion may become geometrically invalid!|
Note: A Draft Angle cannot be applied to the Extrusion of a 3D face.
Invert Active Object
The Invert Active Object parameter appears in a number of functions, for example the Extrude and Revolve functions under Solid >Add/New/Remove. The parameter is available only for open objects.
An example of the use of this parameter is as follows:
|A circle is extruded to form a cylinder,..||using the parameters shown below:|
Press the Invert Active Object option to move the cylinder (the active object) the Delta distance in the defined direction. Pressing the option again, returns the cylinder to its original location.
