Hi to all, and thanks for any help you can offer.
I have created a cube, made it an editable poly, broken up the faces with the cut tool. I have grouped the pieces that I want in the same segment.
Then problem comes when I try to create the inner planes for the groups segments. I need to use the create button (I think)but I can't get it to properly work. I have tried using the extrude tool but it gives unwanted results.
Can anyone help me in creating the inner planes on segmented group faces of a cube that I intend to break apart using the fracture option in reactor.

Go into subobject mode for polygons. Click the create button. You should now see the vertexes of the polygons. Simply click on the vertexes of the new polygon you want to create, in order going around, and then either double click or click again on the first vertex you selected. This should create a new polygon face. Use this method to fill in the void sections of your polygons.

Hope this helps

Yep I figured out. I was activating the create polygon while in point mode. So nothing was happening. But I fumbled around till I figured to activate while in poly mode.
