I am trying to use the create polygon tool. I am following the tutorial by autodesk maya makers. The tutorial is as follows\r\n\r\nTo create the lower front region of the helmet (that is, the region that would protect the mouth and jaw of the wearer) you\u0092ll create a polygon for the cross section of the lower front region by manually placing vertices using the Create Polygon Tool.\r\nTo place vertices for a polygon\r\nIn the side view, select Mesh > Create Polygon Tool > .\r\nThe Create Polygon Tool settings editor appears.\r\nIn the tool settings editor, set the following options:\r\nLimit the number of points: On\r\nLimit points to: 6\r\nThese settings specify that a closed polygon face will be created once you have placed six vertices in the scene.\r\nIn the side view, place six points for the profile in the lower front region of the helmet (see image below).\r\nImportantEnsure that you place the vertices in a counter-clockwise direction for this step.\r\nThe new polygon face is created along the YZ plane (the axis of symmetry for the model).\r\n\r\nPress the q key to quit the Create Polygon Tool when the polygon face is complete.\r\nThe new polygon component remains selected in Object Mode.\r\nNote\r\nIf the polygon face doesn\u0092t appear shaded in the side view but does appear shaded in the perspective view, it means that the polygon face and the image plane lie on exactly the same plane. You can correct this by moving the image plane backwards in the side view so it doesn\u0092t lie directly on the YZ plane, but this step is not critical to the success of the steps that follow.\r\nYou\u0092ll extrude this polygon face to create the remainder of the lower front region of the helmet. Before you can extrude the new face it needs to be selected in Face mode. You can do this quickly by converting the existing selection to Faces.\r\nTo convert the object selection to face selection\r\nWith the face still active in Object Mode, choose Select > Convert Selection > To Faces.\r\nThe selection is converted to a face selection.\r\n\r\nOk so one of the pictures is http:\/\/download.autodesk.com\/us\/maya..._drawface1.png\r\n\r\nwhen i try to create polygons, the vertices never show up in the orthographic mode. Sometimes when i am in persp mode, it shows up. I dunno how to use it. help.
