Starting primitives

What kind of basic prims do you guys start with? Is the cube the best one for everyday usage? Or how about Suzanne? :wink:

Anyway, just trying to get an idea of what can be done with only a few vertexes. Thanks.

I’ve found this to be VERY useful.

Get an image/drawing of what you want to create. Set those images to the background of the 3d space. It’s better if you have a front, side, and top view, that way you can shape everything correctly. Then I begin by tracing basic shapes followed by extruding and/or filling in faces.

Works for me! :smiley:
