face extrude problem
on Jul 22, 2008 at 2:52:00 pm

I'm working thru a tutorial and have gotten to polygonal modeling but can't get 'extrude face' to work. i select the face and when i pull the blue arrow, it moves but when i let go, it returns to the original position. I've no problem extending the other two directions. No error message appears.

Is SNAP enabled? Just a thought. Does it do it to other objects? Test out another shape like a cube...

discovered the problem...quite simple to resolve but not too obvious. my manipulator tool was quite small--i guess that it is the default size from installation. i realized that in my tutorial book pics it was much larger. once i was able to enlarge the tool, i could then see that the arrow and the cube pertaining to each handle were separate elements. once i separated them, i was able to pull the blue arrow without the cube, therefore solving the problem. thanks much for your response!
