Thicken Sketch

I would like to sketch a Dashed line, and after that...Thicken the sketch and extrude.

 

 

This is only possible by using the crappy Thicken featuren in Sketch mode.
OR 1 linepiece at a time and Thicken the extrude.

 

Multiple Lines in extrude modus are not accepted.

Re: Thicken Sketch

I'm a bit confused as to what you are tying to do.

Are you trying to use the thicken feature on a surface to create solid geometry?

Are you using the Thicken command inside a sketch in sheetmetal mode?

Are you trying to extrude a feature with entities that are uniformly offset from another sketch or curve?

All of these are possible now, you just need to find the right tools. :-D

Re: Thicken Sketch

I'm voting for this only because there are several features that should be allowed to create multiple features from a single sketch.  Let Creo manage this internally by not making the user repeat the same thing over and over.

The instance for this idea is a very common practice where you have knockouts.  This should be simple and intelligent including web, radii, and/or segment length variables built in.

Re: Thicken Sketch

I want to make 1 sketch;
And Thicken-Cut-Extrude it in a Sheetmetal part


To create 'Break-Out Holes" and stuff Sheetmetal parts

BUT The sketchers NEEDS 1 Line or 1 Loop.
Multiple lines extrude in 1 feature is not possible (as far as i know).
