Extrude cut - can't cut through the whole part body?

nick_demarco330nick_demarco330 Member Posts: 8
I'm coming from Solidworks, where I can sketch on a plane, then cut-extrude through a body, including through gaps (like cutting a hole through all fins of a heat sink).

In OnShape, I'm not getting this to work. The part is here:


I'm trying to cut Extrude12 all the way through the part (making a vee relief). I'm not understanding why the cut doesn't propagate beyond the first solid element.

    Since Onshape supports multiple parts in the same part studio, many features have a Merge scope option which can be used to specify the parts that that feature should interact with. If you want to send an extrude cut through multiple parts, simply select each part you'd like the extrude to cut, or select the "Merge with all" option. Also be sure to set your extrude to an appropriate depth.

    I've just has a quick look but your model is view only so it is hard to say... I'm assuming you have changed the extrude remove from blind to through all. 
    If you make the model public then we can probably be more help :)

    @Ste_Wilson, the model is public - cannot make models publicly editable.

    I did change the extrude remove from bind to through all because that's what I wanted to do - cut a sketch through all the surfaces.

    @Alex_Kempen, did you look at the part? It is a single body, single part.

    I tried some other things after posting this. Since, I reverted the feature. Screenshot below.

    Your sketch 11 is on drafted face.so the cut is on that angle

    Changed sketch to be normal to world (on mate connector rotated off bottom) and works fine. (see below)

    btw - it is good to make a version of the document when you post so we see the set up as is at time of issue.

    Bruce, that's a great point - not sure why I forget an OnShape document is really a piece of code. I'll bump a version now. Thank you.

    Rookie mistake, only I'm not a rookie. I forgot I drafted that. Thank you!
