Is it possible to somehow extrude a single polygon into creating a solid object (ex: converting square polygon to cube)?

So you or an employer paid $3500 for Maya, and didn't get training materials too? – Byte56 Dec 30 '11 at 22:18
I have the educational version of Maya. – user12173 Dec 31 '11 at 15:52
I'm pretty sure the educational version comes with "getting started" videos that are presented to you when Maya first starts up, as well as under the Help menu. – jhocking Jan 13 '12 at 15:40
