Selecting End Conditions for Extruded Features

You can right-click anywhere on an extruded feature and change the end condition from a shortcut menu. You can click in empty space, on geometry, or on the handle.

The shortcut menu provides all the options for Direction 1 and Direction 2, and is available for the following features:
  • Extruded Boss/Base
  • Revolved Boss/Base
  • Extruded Cut
  • Revolved Cut
  • Extruded Surface
  • Revolved Surface
  • Sheet Metal Base Flange

Previously, you could only enable Direction 2 from the PropertyManager. Also, if both directions were enabled, you had to right-click the appropriate handle to set that direction’s end condition.
