The Shell commands works on an entire solid body - not just a feature.


Either - create that geometry first in your history tree and shell before creating the rest of the geometry


create that geometry as multi-body solids so that it can be shelled (you can then Combine if desired, but it looks to me like that should be multi-body anyhow).



Hmmmp, looks like Walter modeled the solution while I was typing.
