Hello,

I wish to extrude an octagonal shape onto a smaller rectangle.

How would I achieve this.

Obviously the diagonal sides of the octagon converge to each vertex of the rectangle.

I think I have attached a picture.

Any thoughts?

I used the LOFTED BOSS method with guide lines like Maha said.

Can't get the shape that I want (like the one you created but with smaller rectangle).

The extrusion is twisted, I can't get the diagonal sides of the octagon to converge with the rectangle vertex.

Think I have made a mistake with my guide curve sketches.

Thanks for helping

If you put radii on the corners of the rectangle, it can be done a lot easier. With radii, the number of entities match in the profiles, which makes it much more stable.
