3ds max problem

Recommended Posts

I'm fairly new to modelling and noticed when my schools comp lab had 3dsmax I'd give it a try, especially for creating stuff for my game. Anyways, my first project was a table and I got it looking how I want to, the only problem is that the legs containg 2206 faces a piece. That just seems kind of high and I was wondering if ya'll could think of a way to help me reduce it. I've tried the optimize modifier except it couldn't get rid of any of the faces. For the legs I pretty much created a spline for half the leg, did a cross section to fill in the spline, surfaced, extruded and mirrored. I got some pics for ya to look at it too. Its mainly at the bottom and top. I was wondering if there was a way to combine faces or something which may help out. Thanks. clicky 1 clicky 2 probably easier to see than clicky 1. click 3 edit: fixed clickys [edited by - doodah2001 on August 5, 2003 4:53:23 PM] [edited by - doodah2001 on August 5, 2003 4:54:45 PM]

How many vertical segments does the leg's extrusion have? It only needs to be 1.


How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

I can''t seem to get the links to your pics working :/ but yeah... the best way to do it would be to go back in the modifier stack to the surface modifier... and reduce the iterations...
