Is it possible to make a plane/surface, that has no thickness, but is a solid?

I'm trying to model mucube:

But how do I make a plane, that has no thickness?

Hi @marks.logins 

When you give a profile depth, the body becomes a solid. To keep the model a surface model, I'd suggest using the tools on the Surface tab.

Does this answer your question?

Thanks,

Thank you, "patch" was what I needed. But is it possible to turn a 3D object into just surfaces, so that the inside is hollow?

Hi @marks.logins,

Try these steps to convert a solid body into surface bodies.

  1. From the Surface tab click the Unstitch command.
  2. In the canvas or Browser, select the solid body.
  3. The solid body should be converted into individual faces as shown in the image.
