In case you've used Sketchup, you'll know that it's pretty good at extruding. There is an addon that gives Blender that same functionality. Check out this video to find out how it works!

Hi, my name is Jan and I help companies by creating short videos for their websites and internal use, mostly as a freelancer for agencies. I post daily one-minute tutorials for Blender users and wrote the popular "Blender Secrets" e-books.


    • There are many things I could do to increase the production value. But it would take even longer to make, and at that point it would become unrealistic to do it daily. I'd rather do something half-assed than nothing full-assed.

  1. I honestly don't think recording your voice, talking your way through a tutorial will increase time or work. It really shouldn't. You don't have to edit your VO or master it. Make it natural. Even an inexpensive gaming headset mic would work. But it will greatly improve a visitor's return rate. My 2 cents. Good luck and godspeed.

  2. Great addon. Doesn't work in the latest 2.8 Blender : (
    Shouldn't this functionality be part of blender? I've always missed it from sketchup.
