Esta herramienta recorta/corta y extiende líneas y polilíneas, y extruye caras.

Top: a Draft Wire extended and then trimmed.
Bottom: a face extruded into a solid body.

Trim or extend


  1. Selecciona el contorno que quieres recortar o extender, o selecciona una cara que quieras extruir
  2. Presiona el botón Recortar, o presiona las teclas T y R
  3. Designa un punto en la vista 3D


The single character keyboard shortcuts available in the task panel can be changed. See Draft Preferences. The shortcuts mentioned here are the default shortcuts.

  • Hold down Alt to invert the default result of the command.
  • Hold down Shift to restrict the operation to the current segment of a Draft Wire.
  • Press S to switch Draft snapping on or off.

Here is an example to explain the modifier keys. The left edge or the bottom edge of the U-shaped wire was extended. All Draft Snaps were turned off.

  • Recortar o extender se decide de forma automática en función de la posición del cursor
  • Si mueves el cursor sobre otro objeto, la operación de recortar/extender se ajustará a dicho objeto o segmento
  • Presionando SHIFT se realizará una restricción al segmento que está siendo actualmente recortado o extendido.
  • Presionando ALT se invertirá la dirección del recorte
  • Cuando el objeto seleccionado es una cara, o cuando se selecciona una cara de un objeto existente, la herramienta de recortar/extender cambia al modo extruir. En modo extruir, presionando SHIFT se restringe la extrusión a la normal a la cara.

  1. It can be helpful to first change the Draft working plane so that it is not coplanar with the face you want to extrude.
  2. Optionally select a single face or an object with a single face.
  3. There are several ways to invoke the command:
    • Press the Draft Trimex button.
    • Select the Modification → Trimex option from the menu.
    • Use the keyboard shortcut: T then R.
  4. If you have not yet selected an object or a face: select an object with a single face in the 3D view.
  5. The Trimex task panel opens. See Options for more information.
  6. To define the extrusion direction and distance do one of the following:
    • Pick a point in the 3D view that does no lie on the same plane as the face.
    • Make sure the pointer is on the correct side of the face in the 3D view and enter a Distance.


The modifier key mentioned here can be changed. See Draft Preferences.

  • Hold Shift to extrude in a direction that is not parallel to the normal of the face.



No disponible. Mira la herramienta Extrusión.

extrusion = extrude(obj, vector, solid=False)
  • obj is the object to be extruded.
  • vector is the extrusion direction and distance.
  • If solid is True a solid is created instead of a shell.
  • extrusion is returned with the created object.
