urg: thanks buddy! we can’t let this thread slip too far down the page, eh?
ian: edge extrude is great for control, but for certain things (specially non organic) it’s nice to be able to take care of things all in broad strokes, to make sure the accuracy/consistency is there without days of tweaking. like anything, i’m sure deciding the method based on the situation is probably best.
for example [i haven’t modeled a car, but] it seems like edge extrusions would work great for the body, and lots of mechanical actions would be best for the wheels etc.
