I’ve been trying to slide and extrude a hexagon, but I can’t get past this simple problem. I tried to extrude an edge, but it extrudes without following the hexagon’s angle. So far, I’ve managed to do a vertex slide using C to clamp, but I cannot get this to work with extrude.
Here is a sketch of what I want to achieve.
As asked, I’m posting the result of the solution Marty Fouts suggested. I enabled shadows and perspective so you can understand what happens. What I did here was simply move the original hexagon edge up. Now you can see it unfortunately doesn’t intersect the shape, as intended.
