Making Changes to an Extruded Feature
With the Extrude tool, you can switch between different feature options while creating an extrusion.
You can also edit the feature after it has been created by right-clicking the feature and using one of the editing tools:
Edit Definition—Opens the Extrude tab where you redefine the feature.
Edit References—Changes the existing references by replacing them with new references.
Edit—Displays the feature dimensions so you can modify them.
* When you redefine the feature type from solid to surface or vice versa, these changes are not propagated to the dependent copies of that feature.
Using Direct Section Edit
You can access a feature section in the Model Tree and make changes to the section without entering the feature Edit mode. This lets you work directly with the section and its placement references without opening the Extrude tool.
To edit a section from the Model Tree:
1. Click the feature icon in the Model Tree. The section subnode appears in the Model Tree.
2. Right-click the section subnode and choose one of the options:
Edit—Modify the section dimensions.
Edit Definition—Modify the section placement and the section geometry.
Redefining a Copied Feature
If you edit a section while redefining a copied extruded feature, the redefined feature is no longer associative with the original feature.
