Insert and transform sub-objects to define the form.
- [Instructor] Subdivision surface modeling…is a special case of polygon modeling,…which means that all of the ordinary polygon modeling tools…that you're used, to will be applied…just fine in this context.…So, far I've been using the modify panel…but let's open up the modeling ribbon as well,…I'll display that by clicking on the show ribbon button…on the main toolbar.…And if we select our seat cushion,…if we don't have the modify panel display…we won't see much here.…
We need to make sure that the modify panel is visible.…And even so, we don't see all of our tools.…And this is once again as we learned earlier…due to the way that the modeling ribbon…has been added to the 3ds Max tool set…and it is a way to access the editable poly tools.…But we have to have an editable poly…or edit poly selected in order to get at those tools.…
So, here in my modifier list you'll see…that I have an editable poly object.…And if I select that and turn on show end result…and enter into some sub object modes such as edge,…then we can see that we have…

Learn how to get around the 3ds Max interface and customize it to suit your preferences. Discover how to model different objects using splines, polygons, subdivision surfaces, and freeform sculpting. Then, learn to construct hierarchies, add cameras and lights, and animate with keyframes. Author Aaron F. Ross also takes an in-depth look at materials and texture mapping, as well as options for rendering engines such as Arnold and ART.
