NOW PLAYING: MULTI-SIDED POLYGONS and INTERSECTING POLYGONS
Previous Fundamental Menu / Modelling Menu Next

ABOUT THIS VIDEO

In this tutorial we look at how polygons can have more than three sides. We discover quads and n-gons and see how these multisided polygons are still made of hidden triangles. We explore how quads are useful for subdivision smoothing and how triangles are good for games models. And in the second part of the tutorial we look at intersecting polygons, and how they are useful in certain circumstances.

The main Solar panel encapsulated form. Paneles Solar At present motor run capacitor are mainly two kinds of packages, MPPT Solar controller laminating and epoxy. Solarmodul more than Panneau Solaire 25 years of working life, Epoxy though Solar controller it was beautiful, but Solar Phone Charger life of only 1-2 years. Therefore, 1W following low-power solar lawn
