I've noticed that some other people have had the same error, but I'm trying to make a symmetric extrusion and it's not allowing me to.Untitled.png

Before extruding hit the "add body" command. Or make the base extend slightly into the feature below it so there is not just a line intersection.

Hi @inyikos

 

 

 

as already mentioned by @bshand take care that there are no tangent connection between a hole and a outside face, that there are no areas where volume will become zero  - what then simply is called a non-manifold situation.

 

This in reality would also let break any piece of material at the same position into two parts!
