General Usage Instructions
The app creates a toolbar icon under SOLID -> CREATE. The user is prompted to select a planar face with a hole in it. The app automates the process of:
- Projecting the planar face into a new sketch
- Offsetting the inner edge to create a 'tab'
- Extruding the profiles to form the lid and tab
The lid will be generated as a new component. The user can specify the height of the lid, the thickness, and the dimensions of the 'tab' which ensure a tight fit in the hole.

If the source geometry is changed by the addition of new lines, the projected sketch will be unlinked and the lid won't update. The solution is to delete the lid and run the command again.
