See the MPane command in V5- does that do what you need?
Gumball does some of this with sub-object selection (Ctrl-Shift select) and holding Ctrl after starting the gumball move. Set Gumball to align By object to allow extruding on a flat face normal. Does any of that stuff help?
Well, we make no particular decisions as to what card to support - we want both to work well with Rhino - sometimes it is one, sometimes it is another that works well or has trouble - we work with both to fix problems as they arise, but it has been a moving target with different cards and drivers.
Look at the current gumball functionality and will understand that it is not nearly as functional as in the examples above, even a Rhino modeling expert failed to do the extrusion rapidly (go to 12:40):
My list for Rhino 6:
-Assembly tools for big and complex works (as NX)
-Improved fillet tools (similar to NX)
-ExtrudeSrfTapered for solids, extruding a face but keeping same angle for the others (not like MoveFace)
-Better render tools (in the way of VRay)
No, they didn’t - they are not developers of this plugins. There is a reason Rhino is still alive - more is already not better! Not anymore - software is getting too complex, yearly release cycle is not working, adding more features is not working! All the software is way behind the hardware capabilities! I prefer Rhino to be faster, with refined and optimized core tools, rock stable! Let the plugins do the rest!
