Extruding Sketch into Shape

james_alfordjames_alford Member Posts: 17
I have sketched a row of five equal sized oblongs that I wish to extrude to make the shape of a set of steps. However, when I try, they all go to the same height. I have tried various ways to overcome this, including extruding each one in turn, but without success. Can anyone explain how I do this?

Thank you.

    @ james_alford , Have you tried to change the extrude value for each time?
    If not then change the extrude value.

    I have tried this,but for some reason, the shapes that I am not extruding seem to "vanish" from the sketch and I can no longer see them to extrude.

    If possible please share the document or some images of your sketch,so that we can look into that.

    After a sketch is extruded, the sketch is hidden by default. Click the eye icon next to the Sketch feature and create another extrude.
