I'm new to Maya (7.0)teaching myself. Using polygon extrude is having odd results. I can't get a simple extrusion. I have tried changing every option and have it coming out straight some times but it starts pushed in and at times comes out at weird angles. I just want to find a default setting where extrusions will come strait out and I can manipulate the shape later. Any help is appreciated.
If, when you select 'Extrude Faces' from the menu, you click on the options box after the word 'faces', the extrude settings window will disply. Reset these values to their defaults and that should do the trick. Note that you can reset the values to their default settings by choosing 'reset settings' from the Edit menu of that window.
