Use NGon to create closed flat-sided or circular splines with any number (N) of sides or vertices.

Examples of NGons

Procedures

To create an NGon:

  1. Go to the Create panel and turn on (Shapes).
  2. Click NGon.
  3. Choose a creation method.
  4. Drag and release the mouse button in a viewport to draw the NGon.

Interface

Rendering and Interpolation rollouts

All spline-based shapes share these parameters. See Splines for an explanation of these parameters.

Creation Method rollout

The NGon shape uses the standard creation methods of Center or Edge. Most spline-based shapes share the same Creation Method parameters. See Splines for an explanation of these parameters.

Parameters rollout

Once you have created an NGon, you can make changes using the following parameters:

Radius

Specifies the NGon radius. You can use either of two methods to specify the radius:

  • InscribedThe radius from the center to the corners of the NGon
  • CircumscribedThe radius from the center to the sides of the NGon.
Sides

Specifies the number of sides and vertices used by the NGon. Range=3 to 100.

Corner Radius

Specifies the degree of rounding to apply to the corners of the NGon. A setting of 0 specifies a standard unrounded corner.

Circular

When on, specifies a circular NGon.
