View Full Version : Extend two sided poly?

05-30-2004, 04:09 AM

is there a way to extend a two sided poly so that both sides extend?

What I'm doing is:

make a poly, surface [Top], copy, flip, surface [Bottom], paste, merge points to create a two sided poly. . .useful for a lot of things.

When I go to extender, and extend, only one side extends. . .is there a way to make both sides extend?


after playing with this some overnight, I find that I can sometimes get it to extend two sided, and sometimes not. . .can't figure out what I'm doing right|wrong in these instances. But its definitely possible to do. . .now I'd just like to know how to do it predictably

Don't use merge points until you done. When you make a poly, surface [Top], copy, flip, surface [Bottom], paste, then use extender and go on until you finished then use merge points.

make your polygon and select it
use the make double sided plugin
then smooth shift them both (as they will both be selected)

the "don't merge points until your done" sits most easily in my workflow-- and I wouldn'at have thought of it
