Creates sheet metal part from a planar polyline by extruding it orthogonally to the plane of the polyline.
Accessing the Command
command bar: smextrude
menu bar: Sheet Metal | Bend | Extrude Polyline
toolbar: Sheet Metal | Extrude Polyline
ribbon: Sheet Metal | Create | Extrude Polyline
Prompts you in the command bar:
Select a polyline: (Select a polyline.)
The polyline is extruded dynamically.
Specify height of extrusion: (Pick a point or type a value.)
The thickening direction of the extruded surface is applied for each flange separately, in order to preserve the overall dimensions of polyline:
The overall dimensions of the Sheet Metal part match the dimensions of the extruded polyline.
No command options.
SmConvert - automatically recognizes flanges, bends and lofted bends in a 3D solid.
SmFlangeBase - creates a base (initial) flange of a sheet metal part from a closed planar profile.
SmFlangeBend - allows to bend an existing flange along a line, obeying k-factor for given bend radius.
SmFlip - changes reference side for selected flanges with optional shift of flange geometry by thickness.
SmParametrize - creates a consistent set of 3D constraints for a selected sheet metal part.
