Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video Poly editing, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
Polygons make up the surfaces of the objects we're working with. …They're at the heart of what you see at your work. …With this lesson we'll discuss how to use 3DS Max editing tools for polygons. …The graphite modeling tool ribbon is where we'll find them. …We will focus on five of these tools now. This is just an example of what, we're …going to create a very rough version of what you see in the view port now. …Starting with just a box, the first tool we're going to take a look at, is we're …going to take a look at the, Extrude tool.…

He's sort of like a weird, I don't know, …
