Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Poking and wedging faces, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Let's take a look at one more set of…Edit Mesh tools, and that's Poke and Wedge faces.…Now, I am just going to do this on a simple box here.…So, I have a very simple box, and let's take a look at the Poke face first.…So, Poke face basically just divides faces up into triangles.…So, let's go into Face mode.…Select this middle face.…Go Edit Mesh, Face, Poke.…And when I poke it, you can see how it basically just draws an…x over it, and I can pull that out to create a pyramid shape.…
Now, if I select multiple faces I can poke those as well.…And again, it's on a per face basis…so each individual face will turn into a pyramid.…Now again, this can be very handy for creating all sorts of details.…So one of the nice things you can…do, for example, is create something like a sphere,…go into face mode, select All The Faces, Edit Mesh, Poke face.…And now you've got a koosh ball very easily.…So, you can see that there's some very nice ways to use this particular tool.…
So, let's go ahead and get back into this cube here.…
