Extruding problems
Read 2343 times

Ok im having trouble extruding some circles into cylinders all I get is a heap of flat sides.
I have tryed to play with the ACIS settings and still looks like crap.

I am hoping that this is just a small thing that I have missed in setting up the drawing and not a limitation of TurboCad.

Any help apreciaded
Glenn

There lot ways to set ACIS. At my end I don't load any values and all I use is set it to Quality mode.

One other thing to check before you extrude and your in the 2d stage,Click on the 2d objects right click and open properties double check your in the 3d solid and not TC Surfaces

Thanks WD I will have a play with the settings some more and see what I get.

Lofting gives me the same results.
