I am trying to create a sword and inorder to create a good detail sword model in need to create alot of point and poly's when create the box. the problem is the i only need these detail at the edge and not in the middle which is what is making my model messed up. is there a way to creat only a few levels of detail with out creating alot in the middle. plus are there any tutorials on create a sword in lightwave 7.5? Thanks.

After you make the initial box shape of the sword,
Use the bandsaw option and make the cuts near the ends of the graph.
It will put the geometry where you desire.

Yah, I found out that the bandsaw is a very useful tool.

certainly can!
works well
tho bandsaw will give you a more accurate cut (can set the numbers exactly same on both sides which works well with the symmetry tool).
