Hi,

When I draw lines at an angle, no face is created when they are connected so I can use the Push Pull Tool.
Not sure what I am doing wrong. Beginner woes.

A face is only created when you enclose an area with connected lines that are all in the same plane. If you haven’t created a closed loop of connected lines (“draw lines at an angle”), there is no face to create - and hence nothing for the Push/Pull tool to work on.


#3

If no face is created when the loop of edges is completed, your edges aren’t coplanar. Without seeing an example of what you are actually drawing, it would be difficult to tell you exactly how to fix it. One option would be to draw the shape on a rectangular surface and then delete what you don’t need outside the shape.

Yes, that was the problem.

Thanks
