Using extrude to add details to an object
on Nov 18, 2013 at 9:45:13 am

Hi guys,

I've only recently started using Maya and need some advice. I am currently using an Apple Mac and Maya 2014 student edition. I've started an Introduction to Maya course and am busy with a tutorial that demonstrates how to extrude faces of an object. The instructions given are: to select the faces of the object that you want to extrude, then click on "edit mesh" , "extrude", which gives you the following result:

(Pic 1)

However, when I follow these instructions (as above), I get the following result:

(Pic 2)

Is there a setting that I need to turn off or on so that I can get the same results as in the tutorial (Pic1)? Any advice would be much appreciated :)

Looks like you are extruding there, but it seems you have subdiv display on. The 1,2,3 buttons set the settings for the display. Try hitting 1.

(Not for sure, because I'm currently on my laptop with no Maya, but will check later.)

Hope this helps.
