Extrusion is the easiest way to create a body from a face or a closed sketch. Extrusion is a type of the main interaction of the Apple Pencil, the push and pull.
However, sometimes this interaction offsets a body (extrudes not only the face but also the attached features as well), and not just extrudes it. Here is an example:
For these occasions, we created the Extrusion tool.
In Extrude you have two parameters defining your final body:
- Draft angle: This is the amount of taper on your body (See example in Shapr3D below). A useful feature if you are preparing a body for injection molding.
