I was extruding on the z axis, then attempted to extrude along the x axis. I tried to right click to cancel the z axis extrusion (unsuccessfully). Then right clicked again, to newly select the faces on the x axis to extrude (unsuccessfully). The two arrows, (x,y front view) remained were they were. I can change the axis constraint, but I can't extrude from a new location and would like to.

Thank you for any help you can offer!

  • $\begingroup$ @Tullerie I'm not sure what you mean by the first bit of the question. About the two arrows, it sounds like you might have the Pivot Center set to 3D Cursor. Try moving the 3D cursor by left clicking or changing the Pivot Center to Bounding Box Center by pressing , (comma). $\endgroup$ – catlover2 Mar 19 '15 at 23:18
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you for your help. I have now tried hitting the comma button, but i don't seem to be having much luck with it. i will experiment with it a little more. Thank you. $\endgroup$ – Tullerie Mar 19 '15 at 23:50

    $\begingroup$ I redid the mesh, and what worked, that did not seem to work last time is to left click to set, then the command like you said, then right click at the point to start the new transformation. Thank you again for all of your help and perseverance! $\endgroup$ – Tullerie Mar 20 '15 at 21:17

To cancel an axis constraint, such as the Z axis, hit the same axis key two more times and that will remove the constraint. You can then hit another axis key for another constraint.
