#1

Hi, I am trying to build a model of a Dutch windmill which requires a vertical section of it to taper from bottom to top of it. I am not able to draw it. Could someone help with this? Thank you! The shape is an octagon.

Draw an octagon, extrude it up with Push/Pull, and the select the top face and scale it with the Scale tool.

Or draw the cross section profile and an octagon for a Follow Me path.

Thanks, I was trying the move tool!

You could use the Move tool on the top octagon if you find a cardinal point. Don’t select anything before getting the Move tool. Then hover over the edge of the top octagon and find a place where the edge is not selected. Click and move toward the center.
