Useful Basic Operations


To extrude a set of faces, first select target faces using right clicks in face editing mode.

Then press "e" to start extrude. Move your mouse to decide extrude amount.

Finally, do a left click to finish extrude operation.

Scale, Translation and Rotation

Press "s"/"g"/"r" to start scale/translation/rotation. Move your mouse to decide amount. Press "x"/"y"/"z" to constrain your operation to be along/about corresponding axis. Finish with a left click.

Duplicate and Merge

You may only want to model half of a symetric object. The duplicate and merge trick will help you get the other half. (2:50~4:50) of the video tutorial shows you how to do it.
