Create>PolyPrimitives>Plane with NO subdivisions. (to make it easy for you) Now make anequalateral triangle. Can you do it? Here's how you check to see if you're right: Choose Create>Measure Tools>Distance Tool. Snap to curve (hold down c and drag along edge of object) one locator of the distance tool to one point of the triangle and curve snap the other locator of the distance tool to another point on the triangle. If the distance between those two points is the same for all sides of the triangle, you've done it. *waits for someone to reply* __________________ www.Darkware3D.com Last edited by Darkware : 07-12-2003 at 06:07 AM.

There are many simple things that seem to be impossible to achieve, but usually have very simplistic answers. __________________ www.Darkware3D.com

A circle made up of anything other than dimensionless vertices is not a circle. __________________ That'll do donkey... that'll do...

You can't make a circle out of lines, therefor making a perfect circle in Maya is impossible, yet he's asking everyone to do it knowing full-well that it can't be done. __________________ www.Darkware3D.com

Well, that's a relief! I was scared that he might come back and prove it was somehow possible... at which point I would have fallen off my seat and passed into a mathematically induced coma.
