PolyScale Offset Detach
Use the PolyScale Offset Detach tool to scale a selected polygon on a mesh item and detach it.
Before with a polygon selected
After applying an Inset value and moving it
When applying the PolyScale Offset Detach command, setting the Inset value re-sizes a selected polygon and detaches from the original mesh. In this example, the selected polygon is scaled and removed from the original Cube item.
|1.||Add a Cube, and select a polygon.|
|2.||On the left panel, open the Polygon tab, click and hold PolyScale Offset, and select PolyScale Offset Detach.|
|3.||Enter an Inset value and click OK. In this example, type 45 mm.|
The Inset value determines the contraction distance of the newly generated polygons, creating a smaller or larger quad polygon framed within the original. The Inset value is applied to all edges.
|4.||Press W and move the selected polygon.|
The selected polygon is detached from the mesh item in the viewport.
