Command Line 6.2.10

3.45. extrude command

Description: This command creates a surface by sweeping a curve along a translation vector, or by joining all of its points to a central point.

Inline mode usage:

  • extrude -h: Displays the help file that summarizes the parameters for this command.
  • extrude –point –s all –p <x y z>: Extrudes all curves to a point.
  • extrude –point –s name –p <x y z>: Extrudes one curve <name> to a point.
  • extrude –s all –p <x1 y1 z1> <x2 y2 z2>: Extrudes all curves from a start point to an end point.
  • extrude –s name –p <x1 y1 z1> <x2 y2 z2>: Extrudes one curve <name> from a start point to an end point.

Interactive mode usage:

Sweeping method:

  • Invocation: extrude
  • Parameters:
    • Curves to extrude (selecting them on the screen or in the tree view).
    • Start point.
    • End point.

The vector that joins the start point and the end point will be considered the translation vector used for the extruding.

Point method:

  • Invocation: extrude -p
  • Parameters:
    • Curves to extrude (selecting them on the screen or in the tree view).
    • The coordinates of the extrusion point.

Example:

A circle (centered at the origin, radius = 2) was created prior to the following operations.

> extrude

Select curves on screen (Press enter when done): // Select the circle

Start Point [x y z]: 0 0 0

End Point [x y z]: 0 0 3

Result:

Result after extruding the circle
