I have a cylinder and I want to extrude only a small portion of one of its faces inwards. How would I do this?
Let's assume you want the extrude a small portion of the plan(a). plan(a) is 1m*1m . We will extrude 0.5m*0.5m know as plan(b):
Select plan(a), (1)use the extrude fonction but do not extrude yet
(2)change to scale fonction and now you can extrude. You have now the plan(b) inside the plan(a). With both plan perfectily aligned.
(3)Now you can extrude plan(b)
I know it sounds obvious but: Extrude inwards. Select the face and the shortcut is
I instead of
Funny, but I can't find the command reference at the moment! Should be in the Blender Docs somewhere.
