how do i count polygons


i’ve been trying my hand at modellling and i’ve been advised that for certain games i should try and keep the polycount below 2000. is there a function on blender that will tell me how many polygons a model has?

In the top right corner of the user preferences window.
These numbers will display the vertex/face count of a single object (left to the total count) if you’re in edit mode.
Note that not only meshes are counted as objects and that the extra verts created with subsurf are taken into account as well.

Forgot to include this… why can’t you add new attached files when you edit a post?


nice one, thanks.
