Flay lists a number of "thinkener" plugins. Which one's the best?

The one I tried scambled some of my polys.

I tried my copy of YO_mirrorweights yesterday and it didn't seem to work (crashed LW). I tried looking for another version on flay and came up empty. Anyone can post me the plugin? Or confirm it works with 7.5c?

I'm not sure of other ones, but I use an lscript called simply thickener.lsc. Works exactly as advertised.

I'm using it fine on 7.5c, win xp. The version I'm using is from 12/11/2000.

Oh, and another cool plug I've used lately is TB Edge.

I use my JettoBevel. Copy, bevel, paste in another layer, fliip and paste again in place! And you can see results interactively!

I think you get better results on complex objects using the extrude tool. I like thickener becuase it's quick and easy, but sometimes messes things up.

I did the pants on this model using Extrude.
