I have faced this issue while tried to extrude from a surface on top of a cone shape. It should go straight up with no cone shape but it cannot do it without continuing the cone. This pisses me hugely. I cannot even sketch a circle on that top surface and extrude that without it getting cone shaped.
I found a solution: if you hide the cone body, after sketching that circle on top of it, it doesn’t make it cone shaped anymore. But yeah, definitely not something I wanna do everytime.
Hi Pepe, it’s great to know that you found a solution. I will pass on your feedback to our development team and we will further look into this. Thank you for your understanding.
Pepe what you are explaining sounds like you want to project to a surface… I have just started playing with Shapr3D. In NX it is called projecting to a surface or a plane.
Or you can simply go to the extrude tool in the Tools menu, and select the top face. A much more elegant solution is coming for this btw in 2020/Q1.
