Is there a way to increase the number of points allowed for the pen function? It seem to stop at 100 points. I've looked and have not been able to find a perameter available to adjust it.

It would probably be easier to make your shape with multiple polygons and then use this to merge them all. https://www.lightwave3d.com/assets/plugins/entry/unigon/

I guess there's no way to increase the number of points to larger than 100. the unigon looks very useful. Thanks for that. Is there an easy way to put a top on a closed loop polygons?

The Pen tool has no options to increase point limit.

If you hit the 'p' key you'll make a polygon from the selected points. Or hit 'Make Polygon' under the Create tab.

An easyish way to close all open holes in your mesh is to first use the 'Select Open Edges' command. Then use the 'Convert to Point Selection' command then use the 'Make Polygon' command. That way you do not have to manually select the points in the correct order before making the polygon. If you have LWcad there is a nice cap hole tool in there.
