Extrude direction

Extrude direction

I have made a sketch upon a Surface and now I would like to extrude it.

Direction will be perpendicular to another plane I have.

I can not find any options for this.

Re: Extrude direction

As Ron said, extrudes always are created perpendicular to the sketching plane.

If you have a sketch or curves on plane A and want to extrude them perpendicular top plane B which is not parallel to plane A, you need to create another sketch on plane B and use the "project" tool in sketcher to project the curves from the original sketch onto plane B.

Re: Extrude direction

extrudes will always be perpendicular to your sketch plane.

after you're done with the sketch (and hit the check mark) you will be able to control direction from the sketch plane and length.

Re: Extrude direction

Is the 'another plane' not parallel to the surface you sketched on?
