Editing a room's size and shape in 3D with the Extrude tool

Editing a room's size and shape in 3D with the Extrude tool How to use the Extrude tool to change the geometry of a mass and how it is different from the Move tool used on a face.

You can use the Extrude tool to extend a room, adding new wall faces or slab faces where necessary.

Click on the Extrude tool.

Pro Tip: The Extrude tool can only be used in a project created in the Massing mode. Check the top right corner on the right panel to see if the project is Massing or BIM.

In 3D view, click on a mass face to extrude it. Move the mouse and click again to place it, or enter the numerical distance of extrusion.

You can extrude any horizontal, inclined or vertical face of a mass.


To extrude only a part of a room, first use the Split Face tool to split the wall or slab face. Then extrude the desired part of the face.


Note that extrude can only be done in the outward direction.
