Hello! I am a new user of ViaCAD Pro 6.0 and designing an injection molded part. I have drawn my part but do NOT understand how to get a draft of 2 or so % in the shell. Is it even possible???

The shell tool does not have an option for draft angle. However, after you shell, you can use the draft face(s) tool.

...or maybe create the solid first, with the draft, and then shell it. Just a guess on my part!

Does the shell tool have the option to shell out wards? If it does, then I forgot about that option.

No, it shells each face in the body.
