Extrude Class to be same as object class

Question

So often I create a polygon - have it classed correctly - then extrude it only to have the extrude change the class of the object.  Extrudes should just inherit the class of the object the operation is being performed on.

Yes, this is kind of a bug, as the preferred workflow is draw in the desired class. As it is now, I class later because of this issue.

I'm not sure.

Maybe VW should ask which Class :)

 

At least it was terrible when both could have different Classes.

I feel it is a bug too. Its different than the traditional behaviour and has only been this way for a few versions. I certainly don't want the added step of VW asking every time I make an Extrude. I know that some people have made use of this in their workflow, mainly for having different coloured objects within one extrude, but it doesn't update reliably after the initial creation.

Hi Tom,

I agree!

In case of multiple 2D objects in the extrude (or multiple extrude) the simply use the class of the first object. When the extrude gets ungrouped VW should use the 2D class and reaply to the extrudes.
