Here's a riddle for the SolidWorks Gurus.


Three stacked bodies with a plane floating some distance above them.

A cylinder is extruded from the plane with the end condition set to "up to next".

The profile of the cylinder is fully contained within the silhouette of all three bodies.

The bodies are ignored and the cylinder is extruded to the origin plane.

How many apples does Jo have remaining?


The expected behaviour is that the cylinder is extruded to the nearest face on the closest body.

I've attached the example file made in SW2014.
