You’ve just subdivided your pizza into four squares. In modeling terms where there was one face, there are now four faces. Cut down the middle of each square again e you’ll be making four cuts e and you’ll have 3D Art Essentials Copyright Ó 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. 55 56 Chapter 5 SUBDIVISION SURFACES: THE MARRIAGE OF POLYGONS AND NURBS sixteen squares or slices of pizza, just the right amount to get a party going. Think of the pizza as a flat quad polygon. Cutting down the middle of the pizza added two vertices in the middle of edges that were opposite each other and cut an edge between them.

Notice how deformed the mesh can get, and how the placement of each vertex affects the edges and polygons. Using Quads In Chapter 3 it was mentioned that it is a good idea to use only quads on your polygon mesh. 5). Theses bumps do not appear on flat meshes, but become more prominent as a mesh becomes rounder either during smoothing or when deforming a mesh as it is posed. While it might even be that the bump is desirable and adds a detail you want, care must still be taken.

Combining Meshes It is often easier to sculpt different parts separately before combining them into a single mesh. 11 A cube. The cube subdivided, subdivided and smoothed, and chamfered. Notice that a similar number of edges was added to the chamfered cube, but they were moved so that the basic cube shape remains, but the corners are beveled. 12 Boolean operations, from left to right: union, subtraction, intersection. build a library of assets for future projects. There are several ways to combine polygon meshes, each with its own advantages.
