Hallow Extrusion

Recommended Posts

I am attempting to made a model of something. I have some 2d plans for it.

There are a few simple parts that are made up of a variety of lines and arcs. I have gone through those parts and cobined them into a polyline. After I have created one big polyline i took it and extruded it. However it is just extruding the line and not the entire surface. Any ideas why this is happening? It is a technique i use fairly often, but this time it doesn't seem to like it.

I sometimes get this problem. If you convert to the polyline to polygons (modify>convert to polygons) and then look at the OIP somewhere near the bottom the is a check box that has 'closed' next to it. Click on this to close the polygon and the extrude becomes solid.
