Polyextrude question

Recommended Posts

I am very new to Houdini and wanted to know if it was possible to extrude primitive faces in a fixed direction....

For example....if I have a grid and then attach a mountain SOP......can I then use a polyextrude and get the extrusions to go in a fixed direction (like straight up) instead of the normal direction

Thanks for any help

In the PolyExtrude SOP under the Extrude tab you can check Transform Extruded Front and change the Transform Space to Global. That will give you a plain world coordinate handle to extrude everything in a uniform direction.

If you find yourself doing this type of extrusion a lot you can set these values as permanent defaults: Click the gear icon at the top right of the PolyExtrude SOPs parameter pane and select Save As Permanent Defaults.
