You can press or pull bounded areas that are defined by the following types of objects:

When you press or pull a bounded area, you cannot taper it. You can, however, select the edges of the bounded area after it’s been pressed or pulled and manipulate the edges to achieve the same effect.

Through the IMPLIEDFACE system variable, you can specify whether or not bounded area can be detected and pressed or pulled.

NoteIf you extrude an existing face on a 3D solid, a new extruded object is created.
