I want to create a stairs-like extrusion with a face - But kind of inverted, like intruded.

The result should be something like this. Extrude

However I don't want to extrude the left face to the top, but instead to intrude the right face to the bottom. But when I do this, the following happens: Intrude

I suppose this is exactly the right thing and handled perfectly well by Blender, it's just not what I want. The outer faces still exist, while the top face is just moved to the inside.

I hope you understand what I mean, if not, please leave a comment.

Like in cegatron's answer, you should use Loopcut (CtrlR)

Once you have made a new edge loop, delete the faces with X or Delete> Faces, then fill the holes with F:

You could use loop subdivide. Press CtrlR to create a new loop.

That way you can avoid duplicating faces.

enter image description here read the manual for this tool here:



you could try this addon: https://blenderartists.org/forum/showthread.php?376618-Add-on-Extrude-and-Reshape It works to push/pull faces creating needed faces auto filling the holes
