# Which tool allows bending a mesh?

In the feature video of version 2.72 the mesh intersection tool is introduced. Which tool is used to bend the scaled and loop-cut cube here?

It is the Bend Tool, Mesh -> Transform -> Bend

Shortcut Shift-W.

It is documented as operator in the API

Bend selected items between the 3D cursor and the mouse

The Warp function that used to be on Shift W is from 2.70 replaced by the Bend tool. The Warp Tool is still there, but you have to search for it. In the feature video you can actually hear the commenter telling he is using the Bend Tool.

• Is it mentioned in docs? I couldn't find a reference? – stacker Oct 18 '14 at 11:12
• The Bend Tool was introduced in Blender 2.70. To my knowledge it is an undocumented feature, or at least a very well hidden one. – user1374 Oct 18 '14 at 11:31
• The Warp function that used to be on Shift W is from 2.70 replaced by the Bend tool (Mac). The Warp Tool is still there, but you have to search for it. – user1374 Oct 18 '14 at 11:40
• Thanks, I hope my edits are ok for you (restored the comment from a deleted answer). – stacker Oct 18 '14 at 12:20
• @user1374 You dont have to search for the warp too, its in Mesh -> Transform -> Warp – ideasman42 Oct 18 '14 at 16:52

I know this is an old question, but for those who still need help, you can go into edit mode>Mesh>Symmetrize.

• this question is asking about the bend tool, not symmetry. – David Feb 14 '18 at 20:31
