Im trying to follow the mech tutorial however I am having a problem when trying to extrude.
I am trying to extrude the top edges of a poly towards the centre. In the tutorial this is encomplished by selecting the top edges and selecting extrude edge. Then on the manipulator tool the little circle (according to Maya help is called the local/world tool) is pressed and the manipulator is centred. Then the edges can evenly be moved towards the centre of the poly creating a flat 'top'.
However when I press this circle, the manipulator does not move to the centre of the poly. Then when I try to extrude inwards, the edges move towards the manipulator, not to the centre of the poly!
Its hard to explain so I uploaded an image to help try and explain what I mean.
Can anyone help?
