Creating an Extrusion
Create a two-dimensional (2D) sketch, and extrude the sketch to form 3D geometry.
1. To specify the sketch plane, in the Model Tree, select the datum plane TOP.
2. On the Model tab, click Extrude in the Shapes group. The Extrude and Sketch tabs open.
3. To display sketch dimensions, on the in-graphics toolbar of the Sketch tab, click Sketcher Display Filters, and select the Dimensions Display check box.

d. To exit the sketch Center and Point tool, middle-click two times. The diameter dimension appears.
5. To edit the circle diameter, double-click the diameter dimension, edit the value to 81, and press ENTER.
6. To complete the sketch, on the Sketch tab, click OK. The Sketch tab closes.
7. On the Extrude tab, change the depth to 61.5 and press ENTER.
8. On the Extrude tab, click .
9. To manipulate the orientation of the model in the graphics window, do the following:
