Why can I not extrude from a plane contained inside a solid? (cannot extrude from an inside plane)
Examples on YouTube shows it is doable, but it is not allowing me to do it. It is allowing me to draw on the plane I created or was a primary plane (was contained inside my solid). But once I accepted the sketch I created (just a simple circle or a polygon) it turned to dashed lines and would not extrude. I have split the solid with my sketch plane, drew my sketch, extruded it with a remove or an add, then united the two parts of the solid again. I am sure there is an easier way of doing this. Is there something wrong (maybe) with the defaults that I am operating under, that I am not aware of that is not allowing me to do this. I know it is doable (I've seen it on YouTube), so, why is it not allowing me???
