View Full Version : Symmetry w/ Extrusions

03 March 2002, 11:30 AM
The new symmetry tools in XSI are nice, however, after watching a video demonstration and reading the docs over, it seems that the symmetry only functions on transformations of points\edges\faces.

However, it will not function when you try to extrude a face on one side and hope to have it do the same on the other.

Is there a quick way to solve this? Or would I just have to model half, duplicate n inverse it, weld vertices, and than call symmetry on again if I chose to work with just transformations?

Btw - Here's a tip for the new weld vertices tool in XSI 2.0. Hit M to go into points mode, and then hold down ALT and click n drag a point over to another and it will automatically weld them together! Awesome tool, thanks softimage.
