Extrude around a bend

Recommended Posts

I'm doing some basic modelling and want to extrude a face a number of times, rotating around an offset axis so that I end up with a curved extrusion (See B in the pic).

I've figured out how to do this by selecting the face, offsetting the axis, then control/shift rotating to duplicate the face in 5 degree increments. This works but it's damned laborious.

Matrix extrude is frustratingly close to what I need but it doesn't allow for the offset of the axis. Is there a script or a plugin to do this or some inbuilt tool that I am missing?

Also, just extrude upwards and then use a bend deformer
