Hi

I'm quite new to modelling ( using Max 6) and I have been reading lots of threads on the site and gaining excellent modelling insight.

I wondered though, if I glossary of terms could be complied. Some terms leave me to make up my own mind as to the defination e.g. some terms like, spirals in a model and edge loop modelling.

I think it would be a good idea to learn from the pro's and hopefully for other not so experienced modellers to understand these terms. If they could be posted with a screenshot, clearly explaining the definations it would be a huge help too many, IMO.

Thanks

Jay
