…Polygons are extremely useful objects,…becoming proficient with them will help your workflow immensely.…Whether you end up using them to create floors or roofs, or extrude geometry to…create basic 3D modelling, or even just use them with boolean tools to…create complex shapes, polygons are very useful objects to be familiar with.…We'll start with a blank drawing.…And we're going to use the 2D Polygon tool to create a closed polygon.…I'm going to create sort of a mountain range here with three peaks.…And then I'm going to click on the first point to create my closed polygon.…
You can verify that it's a closed polygon, by looking at the object info palette, and…seeing that it's checked as closed.…I'll press X to return to selection mode, and…we see I get some basic smart points I can use to modify the object.…But, really, all I can do is kind of stretch and skew it.…However, if I go to the reshape tool I have a much finer control over my object.…We can see a lot of modes appear in the reshape.…The first section has to do with how the vertices will move.…
