Selects the extrusion path based on a specified object. The path is moved to the centroid of the profile. Then the profile of the selected object is extruded along the chosen path tocreate solids or surfaces.Select extrusion path:
Use an object selection method
The following objects can be paths:
Edges of solids
Edges of surfaces
HelixesNote: You can select faces and edges on solids by pressing and holding CTRL, and thenselecting these subobjects.The path should not lie on the same plane as the object, nor should the path have areas of high curvature.The extruded solid starts from the plane of the object and maintains its orientation relativeto the path.If the path contains segments that are not tangent, the program extrudes the object alongeach segment and then miters the joint along the plane bisecting the angle formed by thesegments. If the path is closed, the object should lie on the miter plane. This allows thestart and end sections of the solid to match up. If the object is not on the miter plane, theobject is rotated until it is on the miter plane.
