Please note that this tool now runs directly from the mARCH tool bar and no longer opens a separate palette window as shown in the video, below,

Notes

  • You can select the vertices in any order as they are sorted by height before the polygon extrusion takes place.

Limitations

  • Does not support X-up axis coordinate space.
