Extrude Between Two Limits/Distances

MarkMark Member Posts: 2
Apologies if this question has been asked before, but I couldn't find an answer to it.

Is there any way to extrude a sketch between two limits? i.e. +5mm to +8mm 

At present it only seems to extrude from 0mm to any distance you specify, but not between two limits. I am coming from a Unigraphics NX background where this is quite useful.

    Currently it is not possible in Onshape would be great to have this option in the future!
    I use a lot this option in SolidWorks.

    Thanks for the replies, at least I will now stop looking for a hidden check box to try and do this! Move Face and Extrude Remove it will have to be!

    We have an open improvement for a second direction for both Extrude and Revolve.  I'll add all of you to it!

    As well as a second direction, I'd eventually like to see extrude from an arbitrary start entity, including a face or surface, but more typically a plane remote from the sketch. 

    Also I'd like to see extrude in an arbitrary (ie not necessarily orthogonal) direction. 

    Both of these capabilities simplify the feature list as well as the workflow...
