With the Edge Extrude tool, edges are shifted outward along the average normal of their two neighboring polygons. New faces are added between the edge and their neighbor polygons so that their neighbors can remain in their original plane. Neighbor polygons are shrunk by the same amount and in the same manner as for edge bevel.

Edge Extrude PanelParameters:

Extrude: This distance value determines how far the edge will be shifted out away from its original position.

Width: This distance value determines how far the newly generated edges will be shifted away from the original edge location.

Use Material: Turn this on to apply a specific material group to the polygons created with the edge extrusion.

Material Name: Specifies the material group for the Use Material command.
