View Full Version : Can't extrude model!

08 August 2005, 02:31 AM
Hi. I'm relatively new to CG (much more to Lightwave). How would I go about extruding this shape? I think the polygons are screwed. I tried selecting all the points, then hitting Make Pol, but that eliminates the curves....

I don't get what problem you are having extruding the shape.
I downloaded the file and (shift e) and extruded the shape.
ploise exploin? :hmm:

It extrudes the shape, yes. But it only extrudes the edges, rather than giving it faces. Also, when you view the shape from other angles, some of the edges just disappear... Is this an issue with levels?

Edit: I am using LW modeler 7.0 (build 471)

You'll need to freeze the spline object first (ctl D), then select the points in order and hit "p" to make a single poly, it should now extrude just fine. You may need to hit "f" to flip the polys.

thank you, cyphyr! I admit, that's not what I ended up doing... in fact, I'm not even sure what I did, but it worked! :)
