ℹ️ This feature is available to all users.
You can create 3D bodies from faces and closed 2D sketches by pushing or pulling the faces and sketch fillings.
Select a closed sketch’s filling or a face.
Pull or push the sketch or face with your Apple Pencil, mouse, or finger on your trackpad.
Define the exact length you want to push or pull on the dimension label. If you have a keyboard connected to your iPad, you can type in the exact value and press the Return key to finalize the dimension.
- Deselect the body by selecting the empty space or Deselect All.
When you’re pushing or pulling, you’re actually doing the same thing as these actions:
From a closed sketch or a face with no adjacent fillets or chamfers, you can use the push or pull action to extrude your selected shape.
- Offset with adjacent fillets
If there’s a fillet on at least one of your edges, pushing or pulling the face will offset your body in a way that keeps the rate of the offset and extrudes all other parts.
Create holes from closed sketches
If you create a closed sketch on a face, and select and pull it, you can create a hole in your body.
Modify holes or cylinders
Select the non-planar face of the hole and pull it. You’ll notice that its radius changes as you pull.
