Extruding.....
« on: July 18, 2010, 03:34:25 PM »
Going throught the Maya tutorials in the program and im doing the helmet one.
Im up to creating the front part of the helmet, Iv created the 'polygon face' like it says, I convert it to "faces", I go 'edit mesh' then extrude, and the tute says that the tool should be showing, but i cant find it anywhere-on the tute it says it should be there without me doing anything but it is not, so i am totally lost  ??? ??? ???

As well as having the polygon on faces mode, make sure you have the faces selected that you wish to extrude before extruding :) The manipulator should then show up on the selected faces and it will allow you to do a combo of move, scale and rotating. Hope that helps :)

i seem to have made something all screwy.

When I extrude a square face, it makes it a roundish thing which pisses me right off.  How do I get back to the square extrusions???

Please help. My capacity for human kindness is waning...
