29 30 Chapter 3 POLYGONS: HOW 2D BECOMES 3D When you do this with a face, you are often creating a bump on a mesh. You could do it again and again to the same face and create a longer, multifaced tube. When you do this with an edge, you are simply pulling out a new polygon. Once again, you can do this more than once on that same edge to create a path of polygons, a method that extrusion modelers use a lot. Having extruded a portion, you can then manipulate it like any other part of your mesh. This is an essential tool for adding detail.

It helps to select by bounding with a rectangle to get all of those vertices on the corner. Moving multiple vertices can help to keep things in line. Usually there is also a way to single select more than one by using the keyboard as you select each one with a mouse. Delete the face that is on the side view plane e the one that is down the center of the robot image in the front view. If you extruded, it's the one you originally drew. Chapter 3 POLYGONS: HOW 2D BECOMES 3D 39 Step 3 You will want to add more details to make the main body match the drawing more closely.

Try them out to see what happens, using the undo button if they don't work well for you, until you get the best result. Because of the curves, not all the polygons will be the same size on the feet and joint guards. The more polygons you use, the closer to the curves your mesh will be. SUBDIVISION SURFACES: THE MARRIAGE OF POLYGONS AND NURBS 5 As the drawbacks of NURBS became apparent when they were put to the test in feature film production (Pixar only used NURBS for their first feature-length film, Toy Story), experts turned back to modeling with polygons.
