4. Select the poly edges of the main cylinder, and scale them out increasingly larger as
you work your way down. Delete every other edge of the top surface as you did with
the lid. Your kettle should look like the one in Figure 6.36.
5. You are going to create a simple handle for the lid. Select the lid’s top four faces. You
will create the handle by extruding these faces and scaling them in. First, make sure
the option Edit Mesh
Keep Faces Together is enabled. This option lets you extrude
these faces properly by keeping the poly faces together during the extrude operation.
Now select the four faces again and choose Edit Mesh
❒. Choose Edit
Reset Settings to make sure the settings are correct, and click Extrude. Use the scale
handles to scale the extruded faces in, as shown in Figure 6.37.
6. With those four faces still selected, extrude the faces again, but this time pull them up
and scale them in a bit as shown in Figure 6.39.
7. Select the side faces of the lid’s new handle, and extrude the faces inward using the
scale handle to create detail on the handle.
By default, faces will extrude separately.
Creating the overall shape
If instead of following these directions you choose Edit Mesh
Extrude and use the special
scale handles shown in Figure 6.38, your faces may all separate.
