View Full Version : What's going on? (3ds max modeling error)

02 February 2005, 07:27 PM
Ok, so I just started teaching myself modeling in 3ds max and things seemed to be going well, but, I then noticed a strange face had been added, or hadn't been edited atleast. It now doesn't match up to the alignment of the edge.

Maybe it would be better if I just show you the problem.

Ok so as you can (kinda) see the face overlaps the edge and completely ignores the fact that I've edited the position of the vertex. Could anyone give me some advice on how to fix this?

Connect the two verts and it will be fixed

Edit: you should be in editable poly mode. Right click > convert to> editable poly

I'm not really sure what you mean by connecting the vertices. Well I know, but, it isn't helping in what I want to do. You see the arrow is pointing to a face I don't want to be there at all. Infact, it shouldn't be there as there is no mesh to support it. Infact I even tried deleting the face it seems to be part of but this is still left there for no reason.

Blah, just as my post goes up I work out how to fix it. Ignore this thread if you want. ^^;

Oh and for reference.... I deleted the area in question and then selected the edge and clicked cap.
