The Extrude function was formerly known as "Push/Pull" and was renamed in CRYENGINE 3.5.7.

Overview

This tool provides a powerful function to push or pull the selected face so you can expand a 2D surface to a 3D shape.

How to Use

Place a cursor on a face which you would like to push or pull.

(Select Face to Push or Pull)

Drag the mouse holding LMB in a normal direction of the selected face.

(Pull Selected Face)                                                  (Push Selected Face)

Release LMB to finish the extrusion

(Release Pull)                                                                 (Release Push)

Tips

Automatic boundary checks.

  1. While you push or pull the selected face and it meets another face which is opposite the selected one, pushing or pulling the one will be stopped. If you release LMB at the time that the faces are touching, both faces will be removed.

       (Faces Touching)                                                (Faces Removed)

      (While pushing)

     

    (Selected Face to Pull)                                                 (Pulling Stopped)

      (While pulling)

  2. While the selected face is pulled or pushed and it reaches a face, which will be next to the selected one and has the same normal direction with the selected one, the pushing or pulling will be stopped.

    If you want to push/pull further, you should start doing so again.

    (Pull Face to limit)                                              (Select Face To Pull Again)
      (While pulling)

Alignment with another face having the same normal direction with the selected one...

Holding SHIFT and selecting another face with the same normal direction while extruding the original face, will result in the height of the original face being aligned with the selected one.

(Shift-Select-Align)
 

Resizing the selected face before starting an extrusion.

Before starting an extrusion, you can resize the selected face holding SHIFT and moving the mouse to push or pull it as follows.

(Extrusion Resize)


  

Repeating the previous extrusion.

If you double-click a face, the previous push or pull behavior will be repeated.

(First Selected Face)


This first selected face was pulled by dragging the mouse.

(Second Selected Face)


The second selected face was pulled by double-clicking LMB, so the previous behavior has been repeated.
