I'm trying to extrude multiple faces of a cube at the same time but it seems to be locked to the z-axis. I'm relatively new to Blender and I've spent all evening trying to figure this out - it's driving me nuts. Even more annoying is I'm sure I've done this before with no problem, but now whenever I try to extend multiple faces it's locked to the z-axis. I even reset the factory defaults and it's still doing it. Please can someone tell me what have I overlooked?

Extrude tool is set to Region by default. Just set it to Extrude Individual:

  • $\begingroup$ Many thanks for the reply. I think I perhaps didn't explain myself very well - I already tried this but couldn't get it to work - no matter what I did the extrude was being constrained to the z-axis. I've just figured it out. I was pressing the E key after selecting Extrude Individual - instead of just clicking and dragging $\endgroup$
