Hi guys

I have the same problem (albeit a year later), so I tried newbee's advice. But there's something wrong with mine. It extrudes the surface to create a 'box', but it doesn't create volume elements. It just creates two surfaces with the same 2D mesh.

Can anyone help?

Lindsay

I fixed my own problem. After alterting the extrude function I went back to the GUI and generated my mesh. This is where the problem came in. I was still pressing the 2D mesh button ... I was supposed to press the 3D mesh button.
