Join Ellery Connell for an in-depth discussion in this video Benefits of polygonal modeling, part of Modeling for Product Visualization in MODO.
In this video we'll have a look at some of the benefits of modeling in pure …simple polygons. Now a lot of the modeling that you'll be …doing for product visualization is in subdivision surfaces, because of the way …that surfaces can be smoothed and rendered very cleanly when the objects …are completed. However, there are some definite benefits …to modeling with polygons, and those extend beyond the basics of the simple …construction that happens before moving into sub-Ds. …Let's look at a few of the things that make polygons a good powerful modeling tool.…
So I'm going to start with a cylinder in this case. …So, I'm going to, just place this at the origin, so put my position at zero zero zero. …I'm going to set all my radii to 100 millimeters. …And I'm going to start here with zero, or one, segment, actually. …So one segment vertically. And we'll bump this number of sides up …to 48. So this is going to be relatively densely …subdivided around the radius. So I'm going to go ahead here, and click Apply.…
