is there any way to extrude an entire sketch


Im trying to extrude about 100 circles from a board so that cylinders protrude from the surface like a nail bed but it's really tedious to select individually 100 circles (also the program becomes rather unresponsive when selecting so many things) so i was wondering if there was a way to extrude the entire drawn sketch at the same time.


if it matters I'm drawing in ordered mode

Hi there @hutima,


There is an easy way [the work flow is slightly easier in Synchronous] assuming you have a sketch containing all of your profiles ready to go.... Select the "Extrude" command, then on the ribbon bar, change the "Select From Options" to "Select from Sketch", and the important part, change the selection filter to "Single" can now drag a box to select all of your profiles, and accept, the result should do what you're looking for.

The number of entities in a single operation/process, will always create more load, the more there are.
