How do you give lofted polygonal planes thickness?
Yet another weird question from the architecture student...
I've lofted some curves together, with the loft tool set to triangular polygons. Now I'm trying to give those planes thickness. I assume that it would involve some kind of extrude command, but I can't figure it out for the life of me. The only info I could find was for extruding individual faces, and since the geometry i fairly complex, that would be annoying. It's also problematic since I plan on building this thing on an RP machine and I need nice smooth planes, no weird gaps between extruded faces.
I will be very, very grateful to whoever solves the plane thickening mystery, it's driving me crazy!
