Hi,

I make a disk and i remove top and bottom. How can make a thick side of this. I tried extrude but i can't resize it smaller. What is the best way?

Sorry i'm newbie.

thanks

If you removed the top and bottom you have a cylinder, no? To thicken it you can select all the remaining polygons and run Multishift (with group polygon activated; preferably perform it on a copy as the original polygons will disappear). Or just get free 3rd party plugin, Blochi's Thickener.

or in the specific case of a disc, instead of deleting the top and bottom select them both and first bevel the thickness in. Then use connect.
