Creating Solids

Solids can be created in two ways:
  • Placing Primitive Solids - Primitive solids are placed as 3D solid elements - slab, sphere, cylinder, cone, elliptical cone, ellipsoid, or torus.
  • Using Profiles - solids can be extruded linearly or along a path or can be constructed by revolution or by thickening a surface.

Solid extruded from the profile

Solid extruded from the profile along the path

Solid revolved from the profile

Solid thickened from the surface

You can use the following tools to create these solids.
