Once you have drawn your Polylines and finally after 100 Modify/ Place on work plane, & meet two lines. then You Join Polylines and Extrude.
Now you go to Properties and select your Solid and thickness and the material types and colors.  OK good so far.
Say you want to change a shape slightly by pushing or pulling;   In what real mode do you do this? 
is it under Modify in 3D? I have tried stretch but no.
I can not get Help and answers in the Help or by watching U Tube.  too much time wasted here already.  Time Is Money!
How Can I modify a 3D Solid shape and change it a small amount?????

Before extruding, enable "Use compound profile." Then the shape of the extrusion can be modified by editing the profile(s), even after the extrusion has been created. To modify the height of the extrusion, use the Selection Info palette.

John, since you were trying Stretch tool, I was wondering if you tried Quick pull tool  :-\ well, there are may tools to slightly modify a 3D solid shape but that depends on what exactly you are trying to do.
