[FeatureScript] How to extrude outermost regions of text sketch without including interior cutouts?

evan_johnston799evan_johnston799 Member Posts: 3
I'm trying to extrude arbitrary text using FeatureScript, but I can't figure out how to avoid extruding the holes in the middle of some letters along with the positive space of their outlines. For example, I can only extrude "O" as a solid cylinder, but I want the interior to be empty.

I know I can use a query to select only regions I want to extrude if I have the coordinates of a point inside those regions, but with arbitrary text I won't have those coordinates for every single letter.

Is there a good way to select the outermost regions of a sketch? Is there some other approach that I'm missing?

Thanks!
