Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Edge and border editing, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
Edges are the common line between two connected faces. …They run from one vertex to another and are an important part of polygonal modeling. …Borders are all the edges running around the outside of a hole in a mesh. …In this lesson we'll explore the difference and most often used tools in …editing edges and borders and how they work to shape your models. …We'll be looking at the edges tools and the border tools together, because much …of their functionality is the same. We're going to start by looking at a very …useful tool for modeling in edge mode and in border mode, and this is chamfer.…
We're going to hit two on our keyboard, which will take us into Edge mode. …In the edge's tab, we're looking for Chamfer. …Now, we don't have any edges selected, but we can select them now that we have …the little caddy open. So, I'm going to select the edges all …around the outside corner of this cylinder. …In the Modify panel there is a very useful Tab called Modify Selection. …And the tool that I want to use is called Loop.…
