Just something I saw illustrated elsewhere, so I thought I'd reiterate it for you guys.

The cylinder method was better!

If you have an area already modeled and cannot start with a cylinder, this works well.

thanks again snaf. your little tips always help :iamafag:
with that in mind i really should get back into modeling

Same thing in Maya, except grab the new verts in step 3 there and scale them out. You won't get a PERFECT circle, but if it's going in a game... then usually perfect circles are boring anyhow :P

holes don't necessarily always have to be round, but for things like holes machined into metal this works well :)

What happened to the boolean method
December 7th, 2009, 08:13 PM
yeah that would create errors just an fyi

Well I learned something

Old video I made for someone, like 10 months ago with terrible mic.
Shows my method to this situation in Maya.

Boolean only works on non-sealed meshes, or else it just leaves fucking holes everywhere.
and especially fucked up holes if your mesh is a giant clusterfuck.

So can you do this over and over to create smoother circles?
