Edit Extrusion, OK button Greyed out

Hi all

 

This has been bugging me for a while now and I am now looking for some help.

 

Whenever I edit an Extrude 'cut' feature,(eg: To Add or remove a profile), the OK button is greyed out and no matter what I do, I can't get it back.

 

The only way to edit the extrusion is to:

Shift EOP

Delete the extrusion

Recreate the extrusion.

Shift EOP

fix errors if any.

 

Any sugestions?

Based on the workflow or steps you provided, I can't reproduce this behavior. So could you attach the dataset or image for more details?

Thanks,

Hi River Cai

 

Thank you for responding.

 

One thing I have discovered, is that if there is something hanging off the extrusion, eg, projected geometry, it will not work.

 

Please See attached file.

 

Thank you.

Maybe I did not catch the key idea here, and it is not reproducible using the dataset you attached. Could you give us more steps about the workflow you have done?

Thanks,

I too tried to reproduce the issue and everything worked as expected for me.

But I might have been confused by your model.

 

In education we often give tests with something called "distractors".  These distractors are additional "information" that really have nothing to do with the problem.  In other contexts it might be termed "noise".  I'm not sure I haven't been distracted from seeing the problem by a distractor.  In the attached image can the problem be reproduced without these features?

Can you reproduce the issue is a very simple file of an extruded rectangle and an extrude cut?

 

When I edit one of your Extrude - Cuts with a change that actually changes the condition of the model - the button becomes available.

In the file you posted, are you trying to edit Extrusion11, changing the cut profile fom Sketch2 to Sketch14?  If so, I experienced the same thing that you did-- after deselecting the existing profile and picking the new one, OK was not available (and the preview did not correctly reflect the extrusion options (through all, symmetric).  However, if I made any changes to these options, then changed back, all behaved as expected.

Thanks guys.

I must admit, not some of my best work, the simple design has been modified at least 4 times, (engineering drawings going live without a proper design foundation.)
hense the scrappy work. The reason for the request was that the client has made another change, and. I was not able to edit the extrusions.

I will make a smaller part tomorrow and post it, if I get the error and you guys don't, it will naturally indicate an issue on my PC.

As a matter of interest, there is a lonely extrude in the middle of the tree, just above a shared sketch, edit it, the OK button will not activate at all.

Does it have a name, ie Extrude2?

Hi Sorry, I was mobile.

 

It was extrusion 14.

 

I will make a new part to ease the simulation.

Based on the sketch name and workflow, I retry it. And the behavior you talked can be seen when editing Extrusion 14, it looks interesting, but when changing the extents from All to Distance to All, and make the flip direction right, it will work fine. Anyway this issue has been logged as 1476442 in our tracking system.
