    Default AutoCAD 2006 extrude along a path - Profile and path are tangential.

    I have only extruded along paths in FormZ, years ago. I am attempting to do this in AutoCAD 2006 and I get this error message:

    Profile and path are tangential.

    What does this mean, and how do I fix it? I first tried to extrude a closed polyline along the path and that did not work. Then I tried extruding the profile 1/8" and extruding a face along the path. That is when I got the error message.

    Thanks.

    Try moving the profile so that is approximately centred on the end of the path pline.

    "Unable to extrude the selected object."

    Could it be my UCS setting?

    Ahhhhhhhh! I missed the part about the profile being large than the curvature. (Or something like that.) I shortened the length of the profile and it worke fine.


    Great! Thanks!
