what is this?

when i was downloading the new version of blender and I saw this image http://www.blender3d.org/_gfx/homepage/screenbuddha_l.jpg It looks like theres a polygon to the left of the mouth that has a vertex that doesnt continue thru it as it were a five side polygon?

this is what im talking about

http://www.geocities.com/qwed88/budhaquestion.jpg cut and paste please

They’re fgons – “fake ngons” – see Fake Polygons at http://www.blender3d.org/cms/Mesh_editing_rewrite.425.0.html .


its an F-Gon

select multiple faces (that are adjacent) and press [f]+[create F-Gon]

check it out


[edit] sorry about doubling (check the post times to see why this happened…)

thank you

hmm when i do it it says fgon: make/clear i click make then it says “no faces selected to make an fgon” whats with that?



well, you have to

two (or more)

you may be missing any of the four things above…

try it out…


oh thanks, what i was doing wrong is select 5 verts (no faces) and pressing f make fgon but what fgon does it merge faces so i need to to begin with
