What is going on with Extrude Manifold?


does anyone have any idea what is going on with Extrude Manifold? It was added couple of versions back in a broken, unusable state, but it’s a new feature and yet it has not been fixed since. 2.93 is around the corner, and in the latest alpha it is still not fixed.

I really do not think that recently added new features should be forgotten so quickly, especially if their initial implementation is in broken/unfinished/unusable state. :confused:

If there is no one to fix/maintain this feature, shouldn’t it be removed? This sets a precedent that it is okay to add non functional features to Blender and then simply let them sit there without any fixes.

Any news on this? It’s really embarrassing to see people making comparisons between Blender’s extrude manifold and other tools and see how poorly it fares. And also the fact that it’s not been fixed yet.


There was this version https://developer.blender.org/D5336 that could punch holes through but instead we got this newer version https://developer.blender.org/D7222 because old one was more hacky or something like that. Fair enough, but newer version was pushed out way too early, this is case where it’s better to not release feature since basic functionality is missing.
