Simple extrude and compound profile
Read 660 times

I swear I dealt with this before but can't remember the fix. When doing a simple extrude, I select both the first and second lines that I want to extrude and only 1 of the lines extrudes. I can open a new drawing from scratch and it works fine.

Please post a .tcw in which it does not work fine.

I thought maybe is was specific to my template but now the new from scratch drawing is behaving the same way.

Well, part of the problem I guess is that one of my rectangles has filets. Two rectangles are extruding just fine.

In the drawing you posted, if you want to extrude the inner and outer profiles simultaneously, try this (works for me): Working in an Isometric view, select both profiles and apply Place on Workplane, then Explode both. Activate the Simple Extrude tool and enable "Use compound profile." Press and hold the Shift key; click on one of the profiles and then on the other; release the Shift key; drag the extrusion to the desired height and click.

I couldn't get your profiles to work together either; even after I placed them on the same workplane. I redrew both profiles with the Polyline tool, moved them to the side and they extruded okay as a Compound Profile. I've seen this happen on occasion, but don't know what causes it. I usually redraw.

Thank you guys. That did work for me Henry. It's kind of odd that it's behaving this way but at least I have a work around. I don't think I would ever thought to explode the rectangles.

Like John, I've seen this before and don't know the cause. Exploding is a kinda go-to thing to try when operations don't work properly.

If it happens again,  try selecting both profile, go into properties, change the Pen properties - width - value to '0' instead of by layer. That worked for me in your drawing.

Interesting Andy. I had played with the pen settings a little bit but hadn't tried the pen width. I thought maybe it was a scaling/width/device/geometry thing.
