    Deviding a Disk

    If I tripple a disk I get horizonal triangles going from the top down (Disk 1).

    Now for the dumb question.

    Is there a way of trippling a disk and get the generated pollys to go fron a fan (disk 2) without doing it by hand
    ?

    TIA

    You also have the Spikey tool in Multiply > Extend > More > Spikey Tool and other ways of subdividing the circle with Fast Triple Fan or Fast Triple Traverse in Multiply > Subdivide > More.

    I usually do it manually
    Select the disk, click extender plus, use the size tool to reduce the new geometry, select all the points, weld.
    I do not know why I do it manually either, so much quicker just to press a button.
