Extruding curved geomtery

Hi all,

this is a question that’s probably been asked a thousand times!

is there a simple way to create a solid from a complicated face? my theory was to duplicate the face, paste in place and scale it about the center to make it 2mm thick throughout. I’m struggling to get it to scale so that its the exact thickness throughout.

For clarity, I’m trying to make a part that will be cast.


Fredo’s JointPushPull available from the SketchUcation PluginStore should assist you in doing this.
Note Fredo’s extensions also need his Lib installing as that includes shared methods across many of his tools…

Thanks!, I’ve actually had this plugin before, i couldn’t remember if it ‘thicked’ singular faces or if it just gave them an arbitrary depth to encase the backside similar to creating terrain.

Ill take another look! - cheers, dan

Worked a treat, thanks!!
