View Full Version : Help with polygon modeling

07 July 2004, 07:26 PM
I am working on a space craft model using box modeling. I dont have much experience in modeling, and I have gotten to a point where I want to create a polygon by selecting 4 verticies. Im using 3ds max 5, and Im wondering if there is a way to do this. Look at my image... there is no polygon there where those 4 points are, and I want to know if you can create a face there. Someone please tell me if this is possible.

Make sure you are working on an editable poly object (If not right click on your model and click Convert to then Editable poly)

Go to Polygon sub level (the little red square in the modify panel) and scroll down and click create then click on each of the four vertices.
Or, Go to Border sub level (the little red lasso thing in the modify panel) and scroll down and click Cap.
