in solidwork is possible, when you do an extrude, place an offset, like in the picture.

the same feature in onshape is possible?

    Onshape does not have a built in option to offset in the extrude feature. However, you could offset the extruded sides with the Move feature.

    As an alternative, you can use this custom feature I wrote called Offset Extrude:

    @nicola_malagnini Have you tried using the "second end position" in the extrude feature? You can also use the option extrude up to face or part with an offset.

    Guess I had the wrong kind of offset...

    yes, i use Move feature or i create directly an Offset plane at the right distance.
    i tried your custom feature but it doesn't work how i want


    second end position works in a different way

    the feature that i'm searching it would work in this way: starting from a sketch on a plane, the feature can create an extrusion on another plane but without to put an offset plane. (like in the picture. i have a sketch on a top plane but the extrusion is on plane1
