This means that any overlapping polygons still exist, which adds to the complexity of the mesh. When you subtract, you will select the mesh you want to keep first, then the mesh, then choose the Boolean: subtract operation. This will cause the second mesh to “disappear”, removing with it the section of the mesh that overlapped the first mesh.

Using Quads In Chapter 3 it was mentioned that it is a good idea to use only quads on your polygon mesh. 5).

While it might even be that the bump is desirable and adds a detail you want, care must still be taken.

Now you can turn them, much like a steering wheel. The slope, or slant of the line changes. But it doesn’t affect the whole line, as if it were a stick swinging around on its end. Instead, it acts more like a stiff rope, with the effect of 3D Art Essentials Copyright Ó 2011 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. 1 On the bottom is a cardinal curve.
