 December 7, 2004, 08:08 Re: Extrude cells. #4 Volker Guest   Posts: n/a This is how I do it: 1 Add shells on the surface you want to extrude (you can use the cell tool for that) 2 Put shells in a set 3 Compress vertices (vcom all, you will get an output of your maximum vertex number) 4 Renumber vertices of your shells, so that they have the highest numbers of all vertices (vren disc xxx cset, where xxx is your first vertice number you want to use which has to be bigger than the maximum vertice number from the previous step). 5 Use vcextrude command (have a look in Help-->Commands for the options). Once you know your way through this, it can be a very useful command....But if you don't do the vren and the vertice offset in vcex right, you can damage your mesh. Therefore, saving the mdl before is strongly advised. Good luck
