For an example, try selecting a face (or polygon) and pulling it out. You can see how it affects all the polygons around it, changing the shape of your mesh. Now try this with an edge and a vertex. In general, vertices that are not part of the selection do not move. The rest of the model retains its integrity while you create a sharp and steep change of the geometry attached to the changed selection. However, some applications allow you to control how strongly the vertices and polygons surrounding the selected part are affected.

When you subdivide a mesh with good topology, you will be able to predict the smoothed outcome better. It will be easier to rig and pose with more accurate deformations. It is also important for applying texture to your model. Understanding topology is essential to creating good models. 4 Both of these meshes have the same number of polygons. 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.

Name the sphere Shoulder. For the hip joint, copy the shoulder sphere and place it at the hip. Rotate it 90 degrees so that its height axis points along the leg. Size it so that it is a bit smaller. Name it Hip. 42 Chapter 3 POLYGONS: HOW 2D BECOMES 3D Step 6 Starting on the side view, create a cylinder primitive. Size it and place it so it matches the upper arm limb and is in the middle of the shoulder sphere. Copy the cylinder, and place it on the forearm. Copy again, this time rotating and moving it to the thigh.
