View Full Version : What is the problem?

01-08-2003, 05:31 PM
In this really good head modeling tutorial I am having a problem. How do you get this structure....I start with a box, then sub divide it twice...it is not the same as the one in the tutorial.
In the tut image marked "3 sections", you will notice there are 3 sections of polys...in the box that I made, there are "4 sections"...what am I doing wrong. How do I get the same number of sections in my model as the artist who did the tut got in his?

Thanks for any help

When making a box hit the arrow buttons.

It will add horizontal and vertical divisions into your box.

In the tutorial you're following, just create a box, only one segment on all axis.
press tab. Now make sure you're patch divisions are set to 3. It's in the options panel, so press "o" and check it.
Now press control d to freeze the object. Then press tab again en start modeling away!
Good luck.
