Hello Mike
I made the deck by extruding the hull top sideways 20mm (hull thickness)in then 250mm down to create the gunwale then sideways to the centreline.
Take two examples: If I had a cylinder and wanted to create a cylinder wall thickness using this teqnique the sideways extrusion would not work as the wall would go from full on one quarter to nothing on the next.
As the second example, when I extruded the edge down, some of the points had gone through the hull surface and all of them had to be manually placed to get the correct hull thickness. My question was whether it is possible to do this type of extrusion to follow another surface.
Sorry this is quite a long explanation..
Nick.
