Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Wedging faces , part of Maya Essentials 2: Polygonal Modeling Techniques.
Now, in addition to Extrude, there are other ways to add detail to your model, and one…of them is called Wedging a Face.…Now, what this does is allows us to actually angle, it's almost like an Extrude, but it's…an Extrude around an axis. So let me show you how this works.…I've got a simple box here, and I have got some additional detail on that box.…Now, to wedge a face, we actually have to select multiple components, we have to select…a face or faces, and an edge around which to rotate those.…
So let's show you how this works.…We're going to right-click over this and we're going to select Multi instead of Face, and…then I'm going to Left-click, select one face, Shift and Select one edge.…So I have this face, and this edge selected.…Then under Edit Mesh let's go Wedge Face. Now, if we want, we can choose the options here.…But I am just going to go ahead and leave those at the defaults here, and let's go ahead…and just to Wedge Face.…
As you can see, what happens is it's kind of like an Extrude, but it extrudes around…
