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.
