How to make extrude solid not surfaces?

Lee_HeskethLee_Hesketh Member, Developers Posts: 148 ✭✭
Hi, what I need help with is I have performed an opExtrude() function and then used qCapEntity() to get the end face. I then have another opExtrude() to extrude the whole face another 3mm. However, the resulting geometry is a surface not a solid and I don't know why. Also if this wont work, how could I use the offset face feature like @NeilCooke's mortise and tenon script?

What I need is to extrude a user selected distance, which I have done, and then extrude again to perform a boolean subtraction, creating a mortise 3mm longer than the length of the tenon. Any ideas?

Thanks
