Shell tool won't work?
« on: May 30, 2011, 03:26:21 am »

Hey, all. I'm kind of getting back into Anim8or and lately I've been doing some things and I have run into a problem.

When I create a simple cube, then convert it to mesh, and try to use the Shell tool on it…it doesn't do anything. I know sometimes the Shell tool doesn't always work, but I've forgotten why…
Any ideas?

You cannot shell a fully enclosed object, it has to have an 'opening' somewhere. So delete one of the sides of the cube and shell it - it will work. If you really need a full cube shelled, just make a copy of the original one, size it down a bit and join the two (make sure to flip the faces of the smaller cube so the faces face inwards though)
