Can we extrude in a direction which is not normal to the sketch plane?

Question by Sudhir Gill

We can sweep in exchange... but i want to know any way if possible.

Yes, using extruded direction selection in the box under the end condition drop down. Only linear directions though!

And if you don't want to do it to be linear, you don't use boss extrude but loft extrude ;)

You can also use the swept boss/base feature. Simply create a plane perpendicular to your sketch and create a line going in the direction you wish to extrude your profile. It requires a bit more reference geometry, but its your best bet for extruding in the correct direction.
