    FeatureExtrusion3 - Direction of Extrusion

    Jim Johnson

      I extrude beams for optic paths (think Snell's Law) often enough that I wanted to automate creating the extrude feature as a macro from selections.  However, I don't see a parameter to select the vector for the direction of extrusion.  If I'm bouncing a beam from the face of one mirror to the surface of another mirror , the extrude path won't be normal to the sketch surface.  Here's an example of what I'm trying to do using dialog:

       

      Is there another API that allows selection of this parameter?  Currently using SW2016.  Thanks.
