Losing reference to drawing after extruding it

Hi, I have a Problem regarding extrusion.

After I extrude a drawing I lose all track to the drawing itself (I cannot find any reference to it, in contrast to AutoCAD).
Is there a possibility to change the drawing after the extrusion to change the extruded part?

    1. To preserve the source entities change the DELOBJ setting.
    2. It is not possible to create an associative link between source entities and extruded solids.
  • Hi Roy, I am very thankful for your answer.

    Unfortunately that will be a limitation that will prevent me from switching to BricsCAD.

  • It would be quite interesting to learn what it is that becomes impossible to achieve without this associative link:
    in many cases BricsCAD direct modeling can apply desired modifications directly, without the need to go back and modify the source entities the solid has been created from.

Origami is the Japanese word for paper folding. ORI means to fold and KAMI means paper and involves the creation of paper forms usually entirely by folding.
