3.5.1.26. Face/Edge Extrusion

Description

A face (edge) extrusion is an extrusion where the profile is sourced with a chosen face (edge) and remains slaved to it so subsequent changes to the source face (edge) cause the extrusion to update.

Parameters

See “Extrusion”.

Label of Associated Solid – Name of the solid containing the extruded face. Read only. (ISlavedSolid/SolidLabel)

Example(s)

User Interface Button

Command Details

For a face extrusion, mouse click order is:
1. Pick Face
2. Height
The extrusion direction is initialized to be normal to the chosen face. See command hint for detailed instructions.

For an edge extrusion, mouse click order is:
1. Pick Edge
2. Height
The edge must be associated with at least one face. If the edge is associated with only one face, the extrusion direction is initialized to be normal to that face. If the edge is associated with more than one face, the extrusion direction is initialized to be normal to the larger face adjacent to the edge. See command hint for detailed instructions.

Requirements

See “Extrusion”.

Other Notes

See “Extrusion”.

Example Creation Script

For face extrusion: Solid_2 = Geometry_1.FaceExtrusion("Face Extrusion_1", "0", "Air", Solid_1.Get_ISolid(), 0, 0, "0, 0, 1", "0.002", "0", "0")

For edge extrusion: Solid_2 = Geometry_1.EdgeExtrusion("Edge Extrusion_1", "0", "Air", Solid_1.Get_ISolid(), 0, 0, "0, 0, 1", "-0.003", "0", "0")
