Question Re: Subdividing and Smoothing

Thank you Malekovits.
I am so new at AC3D that I do not know the difference between

"divide surfaces" - don't know that one

and

"subdivide" - I do know how to do this one.

Default Re: Subdividing and Smoothing

select the object that you posted in the first post -> surfaces menu -> divide. Experiement with triangulation (surfaces menu -> triangulate). make a box and experiement. Also if etc. you want to make 2 subdivisions, make the one subdivision, commit the subdivision, experiement with triangulation and/or divide (and reverse these two actions), and then make another subdivision. there are many combinations... experiement...

Hi Lisa,
I understand wireframes now. I thought they were something special.
I lost the ac file I was working on and have now progressed quite a bit. So I'll get back on this thread when I have more sophisticate problems.

thanks for your help

chuck

Oh, I just meant post a picture either in wireframe mode (w on the keyboard) or with the surface lines turned on. It's easier to see what's going on with the surfaces visible.

Thanks Lisa. I'm leaning a lot more about how to use AC3D. I appreciate your help and I'll get back to you the next time I run into trouble.
