Hi Adriano,
I´m afraid you are right. Extrusions are defined linearly and in whatever combinations of x, y and z directions only. What would be needed here is to have a special kind of “offset-extrusion” commnad where one can select a curved edge and make an offset to extrude it (create faces) at 90° (spatial 3D) from original curved edge.
What I think you could do instead is to create another cylinder with same center and a defined radius to account for the thickness and then close the edges to create the solid pipe. More man hours of tedious clicking, but it will work.
