Hello everybody,

Is there a way to create a polygon simply by creating vertexes ? Instead of having to subdivide a poly grid ?
Or just another way to create a poly from scratch

Thanks in advance

Add SOP either by creating from scratch or using input geometry, stripping all but the points then connect the dots using point numbers. This tool is exceedingly useful.

Curve SOP which is self-expanatory. Tip: If you turn on snapping and in the snap dialog, turn on snap consolidate then snap to existing data, you will actually snap fuse to that geometry.

Grid SOP with 2 by 2 divisions gives you a quad polygon then work it from there.

There are a few other ways but these are pretty straighforward. Is there something more specific you are driving at?
There's at least one school like the old school!
