View Full Version : Extrusion/Bevel local axis problem

04 April 2002, 01:03 PM
Let say I have an arc which is a volume basically a squere if you look at the crossection. Si I select polygons that are facing forward if you look at the ar straight basically resulting a arc itself. so no when I extrude polys I can really indent them or scale them inwards, because every polyon scales twards object's local center. is there a way of extrude tool acting like it does in maya so every single polygon will be scaled or moved at its own normal axis and being one surface at the same time (problem Im having with bevel right now)

nope. Actually its all about uniform scaling. Im not talking about polygons that are pointing up if you look at the arc, but the one that .... brrr.. let say you are in cathedral and the polygons im talking about are

here is a screenshots of what I want to do, but in XSI
