Error I would like to override somehow...

I'm trying to design a QR code to be 3D printed... It did the full sketch o
utline but didn't realize, until it was too late that I can't have three en
dpoints going to one point... So it won't let me extrude... The only proble
m, I need to have those points in order to render the QR code correctly...
the error is "Description of problem: Three or more contour segments meet
at this point"...
Is there a work around to override this and make it work?

You can try creating fillets at the corners of the items being extruded so they do not actualy meet at a point.

You can extrude them in different feature by selecting contours. So this way you can use the same sketch over and over and have the extrude done.

Hello,
I don't know if anyone will see this but I am having the same error come up . I have basically drawn an elongated trapezoid and mirrored it about one o f the sides. Obviously that leads to having three segments meet at a point. I want to extrude both trapezoids as one piece but that's where the error comes in. I have done this before without any problem and I can't tell that I've done anything differently this time. I have also tried adjusting the side that the shape is mirrored around so that it does not intersect with t he top and bottom sides (where the error indicates the problem lies). When I try to extrude it automatically selects thin feature and I can't unselect it.
Please can someone help me figure out why I am getting this error when I ha d no problems doing this before? And how can I get past it?
Thank you so much in advance!
