Polygon extrusions

Top  Previous  Next

Polygon extrusions have the image on the vertical sides of the polygon. (Shapes, which are slightly extruded polylines, on the other hand have the image in the middle of the extrusion. Click here for more info.)

 

To do polygonal extrusions set the Solid Shape combo to Extruded Polygon, and then set the "Other settings..."  to what you want as shown in the screenshot below:

If you set the twist to something other than 0.0 you can get some strange effects...:

 

twisted-lithophanes

 

Another object (Flat Shape) uses extruded polylines to create more irregular shapes.
