i need to do some sort of “frame” on a a couple of poligons, like cinema 4d’s function “extrude inner” (i’ve a grab but i don’t know where to put it). i currently select the poligon vertices, do an extrude and cancel it immediately (so the new vertices don’t move) and then scale them. the result however is somewhat wrong, since the new points don’t remain “planar”, but move along the poligon’s normal as they are scaled. i suppose this is normal (and in fact if the poligon is vertical or horizontal there isn’t this sort of error), however i need to keep the poligons flat. is there a way to do this? i searched the manual, the knowledge base, etc but i couldn’t find anything…
is there a way to set the same coordinates for a group of points? i.e. i select two or more points, and set their x or y coordinate to be an exact number. if i try to use the nkey panel i don’t get what i want, and i haven’t found yet a way to do this… any suggestion?
thanks in advance.
