View Full Version : Adding Points to Existing Polygons

How do I add points to a pre-existing polygon? I know how to add points, but I need to create new edges to make new polygons and I'm still a little backwards in Lightwave.

To make it more simple. Just say I have a square and would like to make new points halfway between the corners, then make edges between those points. How do I add points so they are placed onto the pre-existing square object?

Here's a plug-in you can use that will add edges:


You can also select the polygon you want to add edges to and use the knife tool on it. It's interactive so you can move it around until you have it where you want before you add your new edges.

The D-Storm plugin is really good so like hrgiger said, go get that.

Also though u can do it this way, select the poly and use the add points tool to add a point at the top and bottom, then with the poly still selected go into point mode, select the 2 new points and hit ctrl + L, this will split the polygon between the 2 points.
