extruding and scaling


I’ve got two questions on modellig:

1.- when extruding two separated faces, can I extrude them simultaneously following their normal vector? I know I can extrude them together following a direction (x,y,z) but, can I do it following their normals?

2.- The second is, I select several faces, not neighbours, and I want to scale them. When I do this, blender scales them as a whole, not as independent faces. And I would like to scale them as independent elements. Can I do this?

Thanks in advance!


  1. When extruding, select the option ‘individual faces’, this will extrude the faces along their individual normals.

  2. set the rotation/scaling pivot to ‘individual centers’
