Extrude face. (solved)
Hey. I know this is going to be a really simply question to answer, but oh well... My excuse is that I'm still relatively new to maya =]

Whenever I'm extruding multiple faces -in different xyz plane configurations- at the same time, instead of pulling them all and creating one fluid shape I keep pulling the individual faces for some reason. What happens is the individual face gets pulled back, and the 'edge' where two faces meet gets extended and turns into a set of two new flat-faces.

Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong or what setting I forgot?

Under polygon menu there is an option for "keep faces together" ensure that it is checked.

I got it to work.


For some reason my model had duplicated vertices on top of one another so it set the second vertex as the anchor-point when I was pulling, hence the boxes I was creating accidentally. =P
