Drawing with Step Rotating renders as wire frame. (by wolfv)
I made a symmetric sketch by drawing half of it and then mirroring ('Step Rotating' and 'repeat 2 times').
But when I extrude the sketch, it rendered as a wire frame.
Is there a way to make the extrusion solid?

Remove the line on the symmetry axis, since you don't want that in your section to extrude.

Thanks for your quick reply.

I removed the axis line and attempted to extrude.
A green arrow points in the direction of the intended extrusion but the extrusion does not render.
What else can I try?

This worked:

To mirror a plane sketch
- make sketch-in-plane to be mirrored
- select axis of rotation
- New Group → Step Rotating
- - Property Browser → repeat 2 times
- select workplane that sketch is in
- Sketch → In Workplane
- New Group → Extrude

Thanks for your patience.

It looks like maybe you created a new empty sketch g004 and then extruded that? I activated g003, set it to sketch in the XY plane (the rotate is 3D so that's not selected by default), and extruded. That worked for me.
