Join Randi Derakhshani for an in-depth discussion in this video What is poly modeling?, part of Getting Started with 3ds Max.
Polygon modelling dives into the world of manipulating meshes and creating objects …for use in your work. Polygons are basically made up of …components called Sub Objects in 3DS Max. With access to this sub object level, you …can create any sort of shape you need. In this video, we'll take a look at the …concepts behind poly modelling as well as get an understanding of how polygons and …their components work together. A single point in 3D space is a vertex.…
The plural of vertex is vertices. A line that connects two vertices is …called an Edge. Three intersecting edges comprised of …three vertices is known as a face. Two faces makes up a polygon. …A polygon is the building blocks of a 3D mesh. …Polygons are flat. No matter how the vertices are placed, a …polygon is flat. 3DS Max objects are made up of these four …components called sub-objects: Vertex, Edge, Face, and Polygon.…
In 3DS Max, there are two other sub-object modes. …Where a polygon has a hole in it. This is a 3D mesh box with a polygon …
