Battlement Extrusion

At the end of lesson 126, when creating the battlements, you extrude by 0 and then Grab to move. Is there a benefit of doing this over just extruding?

Hi Dan,

In some cases it makes a difference depending on orientation.
When you extrude it generally locks you to the axis that the face is orientated to, Extruding by 0 and then using G means you still have created the face and the faces between the two but when you press G to move you have access to all axis immediately, This might be more desirable than extruding and being locked to an axis as this way you can choose the axis instead.

Hope this helps
