Here is the image to explain what i want

enter image description here

left box shows how i have set loopcuts (green is the face that i am extruding and moving). Middle one is what i want to get. The right is the issue with blender. the red faces will remain. (i have removed doubles on those faces) So is it possible to extrude inwards so that you dont have those faces hanging ? I know i could just delete those faces and thats it. but if you have lot of elements with similar idea it will get time consuming. Thanks

Follow these steps

1) Go on Face select

enter image description here

2) Select the faces you want to "block" and click on Offset Edge slide

enter image description here

In this way these 2 faces will be indipendent from the others

3) Move your middle face in the position you prefer. Remember: move it, not extrude.

enter image description here

4) Select all your mesh and press w --> Remove doubles

    $\begingroup$ That's why I love this site. No matter how long you learn Blender there are still some cool tricks you haven't discovered by yourself. Thanks for sharing! $\endgroup$ – Paul Gonet Jun 29 '16 at 22:51
