The EXTRUDE tool creates 3D elements from 2D line work.
You can EXTRUDE a selected boundary, for example, to create a floor slab between existing walls.
EXTRUDE can subtract geometry, also. Note the TOOLTIP that appears, reminding you of the CTRL key options for the tool.
Pressing the CTRL key cycles through all of the available EXTRUDE options.
