One of the biggest mysteries which I cannot understand is how do you modify something in two dimensions at the same time. I tried to solve it myself by pressing two keys at the same time but unfortunately it doesnot help me. If someone doesnot understand what I am talking about: I want to do something like this artist on this video on 0:44 time. The Artist is modifying the mesh in two dimensions at the same time but there are no tips in left-bottom corner so it is still the mystery for uninitiated pupils like me. I searched in Google but it seems to be a secret. If someone of you can reveal this magic power, please tell me and I swear I will use it in good deeds.

As I see.
If you want to move the object by 2 dimensions.
1. Select the object
2. Press G
3. Press Shift + Z (Or Shift + Y, Shift + X demand on which dimension you don't want to change)
4. Move as much as you want.
Do the same with Scale.

  • In Edit mode, select the Edge Select mode (bottom horizontal menu bar)
  • Select both the up and bottom circular edges with alt right click and shift alt right click
  • Type E to extrude, then Enter
  • Scale with S and constraint your scale on both X and Y axis with shift Z.
