|Summary||0000053: Creation of planes from closed objects (lines / circles)|
this is only suggestion / improvement for better usability of free cad.
Program should ask user if he wants to do a plane from closed line. I use to work with autodesk inventor and when I draw few lines it is possible to choose it as an plane for extrude.
Current extrude does not make sense to me because of two reasons:
(please correct me if I am wrong)
1. you can extrude only plane and you will create a box
2. if you extrude closed line you will create something like shell. And this is not a real 3D object. Even if it is I see faster modeling by extruding these object.

Hi in the sense of the Part module its OK. Because the part module
only grand access to the basic operations of the CAD kernel.
That means extrusion works that way.
What you think of will be in the PartDesign module and is called
PadFeature. It makes a Solid out of a wire or a face. It also
respect inner wires which yield holes. But that features is
so far partially implemented.
is it possible to find these features (extrude from a wire or a face) in 0.9?
If I am wrong and behavior is as expected please set this issue as invalid.
You can reach the PartDesign workbench through View->Workbench->PartDesign
But it wont help you much ;-)
As I said the work flow of the parametric prismatic design
is not finished yet...
My be after the Christmas holidays in the 0.10 you see more of it....
|The Pad feature in PartDesign does the job now.|
