Putting an Agmentation into memory

Then, using this layer as my staring point, build up the remaining layers to produce the top part of the model. Or...... Will I need to start from scratch with an antiprism with the sizes ...

Problem Augmenting

http://i257.photobucket.com/albums/hh225/Squeaky2011/Layers4to10.jpg Hi Rob, I am happy with the shape, so far, but cannot seem to be able to augment any further.

Thanks!

With a little more work on this method I am quite sure I will be able to achieve what I need.
