I once made one which actually showed the operation. It was never merged.

I don't like the slanted face, it looks like the original PartDesign Draft icon (which was better than the new one btw
) but modified.

What do you think?
LOL. I said exactly that *YEARS* ago. Nothing came of it.
In CATIA, Solidworks and Inventor, it's called a shell
command or feature. This would obviously induce confusion as a shell is already an existing shape.
In Solid Edge, it's called "thick shell". Not a bad one IMHO as it refers to thickness.
And in CATIA, Thickness seems to refer to adding thickness to a surface or existing solid (see screenshot
). It's more logical than FreeCAD's current use for thickness.
