Is there an easy way to create a spatial structure from a 2D model by extruding nodes in columns and lines into walls?


For lines, such an option is already directly accessible in the shortcut menu. For extruding the nodes into members and lines in surfaces, it is also possible in the detail settings of Copy / Rotate / Mirror. As soon as at least one copy is created, the new elements are also created.
If you no longer need this feature, deactivate it again in the detail settings.
