    Extrude/Create form

    I'm trying to create a solid mass with a hole inside, should be simple.

    Rectangle with a circle inside shold do the job when extruded, but in the create tab there is no extrude/sweep/etc... commands. This would not be a problem if the create form option didn't show an error (picture 1).

    When I select the truss (all sow a mass) I'm given the option to edit the extrusion profile from which it was created. (pictures 2-4)

    Are you selecting all the lines before creating the mass?

      Conceptual mass does not support compound shapes. You need to work with voids.
      Generally, the modelling is done a little bit different than in the family editor. Perhaps you should follow some basic tutorials before you go on to the advanced stuff you're doing

        This is in-place mass, right?
        - start in-place mass
        - draw rectangle and circle
        - pick rectangle -> create form -> solid
        - go to 3D view -> pick circle -> create form -> void -> cylinder
        - drag (blue arrow) top of the cylinder up until it snaps with the top of the box, lock it, repeat for the bottom
        - hit green check mark to finish mass


          Yes pivo

          That is the in place mass procedure I used.

          The question is how was the other mass (in this case the truss, and it's components) created?

          They are not the same since I can edit the profile of the truss and it's components in such a way that it is enough to draw a circle inside the extrusion (pink like) to create a void.

          Can someone explain this?

          Cheers :beer:
