creating simple 2d shapes
on Oct 9, 2009 at 7:18:07 pm

Hello everyone. Still learning this program..... Can someone please tell me how I can draw some simple ngons e.g a hexagon or an octagon etc?
I want to produce a series of shapes like this and loft them together to form a faceted sided cylinder.
I have circle and rectangle but there must be a way to create ngons yes?

Many thanks
Dave

You can make a nurbs circle with linear weighting and set the number of facets by adjusting the number of points. Use that to make your object.



Or you could create a cylinder or other shape with linear weighting.

You can also use the Create Polygon tool in the Mesh menu and make any shape you want :D
