WF2: exit sketcher with unclosed sections


New member
Another major improvement in WF2. And that is that solid/surface swap possibility when chosing extrude. Defaultis solid. So when sketching a open sketch you get the error message that the sketch should be closed. Oh OK, so I want to chose for surface without capped ends (and this is what I want in most cases). But WF2 wouldn't let met exit the sketcher to chose that options. It forces me to close the sketch, so I can sketch again. Or, close the section and redefine it again to open it. Boy!

maybe they'll fix in WF 3? hint hint!!or maybe we'll jsut have to remember to select surface when doing an extrude!
