THICKEN (Command)

Converts a surface into a 3D solid with a specified thickness.


A useful technique for modeling a complex 3D curved solid is to first create a surface and then convert it to a 3D solid by thickening it. If you select a mesh face to thicken, you can choose to convert the mesh object to a solid or surface before completing the operation.

Note: The DELOBJ system variable controls whether the original surface is deleted or retained after the operation.
