I have a model that has walls with a volume of 0.00mm that I want to extrude so I can 3D Print it.

I was unable to convert it into a normal body in order to extrude it.

In addition I was unable to figure out what kind of body type this is, here a picture.enter image description here

And here a Picture of the Model.enter image description here

How can I extrude these walls?

  • $\begingroup$ I am not sure but I think if you take one section, duplicate it, offset it, then Union and Make Solid (Meshmixer command names), you may end up with a thick wall. I am not familiar with F360, but: can you select segments and define the value of their third dimension? $\endgroup$ – Carl Witthoft May 24 '18 at 15:32

I think the command you're looking for is "Thicken". Recent versions of Fusion360 have moved this around, but now it should appear under the Create Panel when you're in the the Model mode (see the image below for details). A detailed description and short screencast on the Autodesk website here.
