Sub-Object-Level Editing An important concept in the structure of 3ds max 7 is sub-object-level editing. Whether you're editing 2D shapes, 3D meshes or polygons, modifiers, or animation controllers, there are often multiple levels of editing capability in which you can adjust the components that make up the object. As I already mentioned in this chapter's introduction, the sub-objects of shapes are Vertices, Segments, and Splines. 3D mesh objects are composed of Vertex, Edge, Face, Polygon, and Element sub-objects that can be accessed and edited.

This leaves walls on either side of the new opening that appear to be a closed shape. Exit sub-object mode and return to the top of the stack. 22). This is because the trimming has left "open" splines with unwelded vertices. 22. Unwelded vertices in the trimmed area leave open splines in the compound shape, resulting in extruded objects with missing faces.
