Tool Functions
This tool is designed to take a series of faces and offset and extrude them to create a lattice.
Basically, the way it works, is you select an object, go to the menu above and select “Lattice Maker.”
The tool contains several different options. You can select the width of the offset on the face, as well as the depth of the extrusion.
In addition, the extension allows you to keep a face in the middle of your extrusion if you’d like. It allows you to set how face this “pane” is inset, as well as the thickness of the pane created.
You can also set the material of the pane that’s created, allowing for some interesting glass shapes.
It doesn’t matter if geometry is hidden or not, the extension will take the individual faces of an object and offset them, so you have to be careful how you model an object sometimes to get the result you’re looking for.
With some creativity, you can create some really interesting shapes quickly using this extension!
