Hi

 

It's a Friday and I should be dong other stuff but I've just run into this little frustration again.

 

I frequently want to produce rough cutlists that includes the waste material for machining on the end.

 

Here's a part that illustrates what I do, I use a linear pattern with the vary sketch option.  Here the length of the posts are 50mm above the construction line.  It simple and works fine, but only when I first extrude a dummy body somewhere which is later deleted.

 

 

If I don't do this (and I always forget!) I get this...

 

 

Its because there is no option to uncheck 'merge result' on the first extrude.

 

Just one of those annoying little things??

 

Anyway Happy Friday
