Offsetting face, partially


#1

Hi,

Can I get, offset or inset only 1 or some faces, within poly surface?

This is similar to Push/Pull in SketchUp, but slightly different.
Target face is offsetted, then surrounding faces are extended to the offseted surface.

I guess, some 3D polygon modeling tools support this feature…
(Sorry, I forget, the name of these tools.)

I tried this, by hand,

  • separate all surfaces,
  • move one surface,
  • extend other faces,
  • make new solid, from these surfaces.

But this is, a bit, troublesome…

Hi shuhei - no… this is not supported I’m afraid. I know what you are after and it is a long-standing wish…

It might be a little quicker insome cases to
Explode
UntrimAll
Move a face
CreateSolid
