Shell scripts

Post by iamVFX » 04 Feb 2012, 11:37

I had a gear base mesh (that was made with help of EssentialGeo plugin :-bd ) that I want to extrude with capped bottom and preserved UV.
Result of Apply Thickness and AI Thickness compounds does not makes me happy, so I wrote a simple script that duplicate and inverts polygons of the object, merges two object together, hides original meshes and shows extrude and merge property pages

that's not a bug of movenormal but expected behavior when moving weird polygons along normals

anyway, I use this plugin for ages, I think it does same thing as your plugin

Yes, it's doing the same thing that my Push script do, but Weld Edges op that Interactive Thickness use doesn't always work for me.

I'm curious why Move Normal do this weird stuff. Push and standard extrude scale works great for hollow cube from the video

(Moderator edit: after you renamed the thread, I renamed this last post also, that way all the next posts will have the new title and while the thread title shows up in the "Active Topics", the post title of the last post shows up on the "Index" page - HB)

A script that extract extruded polygons to another object. Should I parent them?
