# How can I stretch portion of a model along a plane/axis?

Please see image here for what I'd like to do:

I want to add stretch a portion of the part by 1mm-2mm right at the location of the plane in the image, along the Y (green) axis. This will increase the distance between the screw hole and the cylindrical portion of the part.

What is the easiest way to go about this? I've used a lot of CAD software in my time but learning Blender seems a bit more challenging. I've messed with a few things but the operation I want doesn't seem to be called what I think it'd be, or I'm just doing it wrong.

Help would be appreciated! :)

first you have to configurate the blender options to work with measurements, enable snap , select increment option (if i am not mistaken enable snap its not needed but do it just in case) then select the part that you want and press G , Y , - (if you want to move it the right dont add a - simbol, left its - , + its right, but you dont need to place + because blender already understands that) the value that want to add 1 or 2 mm for example (without mm) if you cannot understand this see this tutotial :V https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOxN4CHeBPQ

• Please put a little more effort into your answers. Give them a little more structure by using paragraphs, learn about the <kbd> tags. Try to make use of the Shift key on your keyboard, when necessary ("I" instead of "i"). – metaphor_set Mar 27 '19 at 22:21
