ExtrudeFeatures Object

Derived from: Base Object
Defined in namespace "adsk::fusion" and the header file is <Fusion/Features/ExtrudeFeatures.h>


Collection that provides access to all of the existing extrude features in a design and supports the ability to create new extrude features.


Name Description
add Creates a new extrude feature based on the information defined by the provided ExtrudeFeatureInput object. To create a new extrusion use the createInput function to create a new input object and use the methods and properties on that object to define the required input for an extrusion. Once the information is defined on the input object you can pass it to the Add method to create the extrusion.
addSimple Creates a basic extrusion that goes from the profile plane the specified distance.
classType Static function that all classes support that returns the type of the class as a string. The returned string matches the string returned by the objectType property. For example if you have a reference to an object and you want to check if it's a SketchLine you can use myObject.objectType == fusion.SketchLine.classType().
createInput Creates a new ExtrudeFeatureInput object that is used to specify the input needed to create a new extrude feature.
item Function that returns the specified extrude feature using an index into the collection.
itemByName Function that returns the specified extrude feature using the name of the feature.


Name Description
count The number of extrude features in the collection.
isValid Indicates if this object is still valid, i.e. hasn't been deleted or some other action done to invalidate the reference.
objectType This property is supported by all objects in the API and returns a string that contains the full name (namespace::objecttype) describing the type of the object.

It's often useful to use this in combination with the classType method to see if an object is a certain type. For example: if obj.objectType == adsk.core.Point3D.classType():
