What is PUNCHit?

Just punch it man, just punch it, go!


PUNCHit is a dedicated, single-purpose blender addon featuring a negative for the initial release manifold extrusion tool, that attempts to work more reliably and be more flexible, than Blender's native manifold extrusion.

Note

MACHIN3tools DeusEx 1.0 will feature the exact same tool, among its many other tools.
Meaning existing DeusEx customers will receive this tool (not this addon) for free with the upcoming MACHIN3tools 1.0 release.

Using PunchIt

Attention

The mesh object needs to be manifold, or the tool will complain.
You can use the CleanUp tool in MACHIN3tools to find non-manifold edges.
