Problem with disc surface
show user profile  hkstr
I wanted to make a disc shape, so I drew a Circle and converted it to Ed. Poly. But now I want to modify a bit its shape and I see it doesn't have interior polygons (only vertices and edges and 1 big poly). Aside from creating each polygon by hand by cutting/connecting, what can I do?

Do you want a 2d disk shape similar to a plane? just create a cylinder with the diameter, cap segments and sides that you want, then using edit poly, remover the side and bottom polys.

I did that and it worked - but what about other shapes that come only as splines, like NGon, Egg, Star etc.
How do I turn them into a mesh of polygons, (not just the 1 poly that results from Convert to Poly). Is there a way to automatically generate a mesh, or does one have to do it by hand?

What about slapping a subdivide modifier followed by a quadify?

$Entrepreneur = if((Designer + Engineer)*Programmer){Problem Solver};

Inset the polygon a little and collapse it.
If you then want some circular segmentation, select the radial edges and use connect.
