Tapered extrude to a 2D polygon

Recommended Posts

How would I do a tapered extrude to a 2D polygon? I would like to extrude the 2D polygon to the red outline so it is at a higher height on the left and small height on the right. I'm not that familiar with 3D modelling in Vectorworks so I'm struggling to get started. Thanks in advance 🙂

I would probably just extrude the poly to the height you need, go to an elevation view that is perpendicular to the slope you need, make sure you are in an Orthogonal perspective, and the use the Split tool in Split by line mode.
