Model Cage appearance
show user profile  Tbone08
I got a model that appears to have a "cage".
I am unable to select the verts, just those on the cage.
it may be subd, but how do I remove the appearance of the cage, and select the verts on the model ?

also, how do I change from triangular to quad faces (do not want traingles)

thanks !

sounds like an ffd on top of edit mesh? delete the ffd (or) collapse the ffd - right click on edit mesh and convert to edit poly?

Tri's to Quads -> select all your faces; use "Quadrify All" in graphite panel under "Graphite Modeling Tools" tab.

Did you try(insert power button joke here)
-Unfreezing the object?
-Uncheck "Use NURMS Subdivision" box in the Subdivision Surface rollout in editable poly?
-"Merge" the object into a new max scene?
-Export model as .obj and and "import" it back into the scene?
