Is there an easy way to create a spatial structure from a 2D model whereby the nodes in columns and lines will be extruded into walls?


For lines, such an option is already directly accessible in the shortcut menu. For extruding nodes into members and lines in surfaces, it is also possible in the detail settings of Copy/Rotate/Mirror. The new elements will also be created as soon as at least one copy is generated.
In case this feature is not wanted anymore, it should be deactivated in the detail settings again.
