Question Extrude with Cap end?

Hi Andy!

A year or two ago, I printed out the AC3D User Manual on paper. Under "Operations on surfaces" > "Extruding", there is an illustration that shows a window with "Gridsnap" and "Select though" checkboxes. Under those two options, there are three more options, "Cap end", "Flip new surf", and "Remove end?".

The on-line menu no longer shows, or even mentions, these three options. So, I assume these options have been removed from the software? Is that true?

If that is true, what is the best method for extruding a set of planar surfaces to produce an enclosed volume suitable for use as a Boolean "subtract" object?

Thank you for your reply, and your amazing software! Respectfully, John Vybiral

Default Re: Extrude with Cap end?

Hi John,


Yes, in AC3D 8.3, Extrude was simplified and the new "Thicken" function was added (Object menu). Thicken ensures that the normals are correct.



There are some pics here:
