Simpel question. Can i make a polygon thicker?
I have created a camera projection of an image. In this image there is a door. I want to animate the door, so when door opens an emitter spits out objects. I have made a polygon selection of the door. Split it up, deleted the original so now i can animate the door. But the door polygon is so thin that my emitter objects sticks out!! How can i make the polygon thicker? I tried the bridge tool where i duplicated the door polygon, moved it 1 cm then bridged them, but then my uv mapping goes crazy??
Please advice

yes, extrude the door (the extrude tool not the extrude Nurb) or you can set your collision margins for the particles higher so it doesn't poke through the door.

Did you try cloth nurbs?? I found it a really easy way to add thickness to things..
