the image shows what I am talking about. I created a cone with 5 faces in Top Ortho view in Blender 2.5.
Then, in Top Ortho view, I selected each of the top 5 faces in turn, and extruded them in place. Then, I scaled each face in turn by 0.9.
After I’d done this to all 5 faces, I noticed that the spaces between each resulting face was not the same and I do not understand why this is. It also looks like the spaces at the bottom of each panel are not the same as one another, too.
what I am trying to do is end up with this 5-sided pyramid shape which has a frame for glass panes, and my method was to use extrude & scale in combination to achieve this articulation.
Any clues on how I can get what I want with even spaces in between each panel?
