Making a face, after extruding a circle mesh(w/ 5 sides)

Post by e_barroga »

How do I add a face after extruding a circle with 5 sides? I tried adding face(F Key) but it did something like Fgon or something.

Could someone please tell me.

Shift+F fill the hole, but is better if you extruede it and do a Alt+M (at center).

Shift+F works, but.... what does it do, exactly(besides covering the hole)? I would really like to know.

By the way.... extruding, then Alt+M the center isn't good. Instead of covering the hole, it combines the vertices to 1. Am I doing it correctly?

Fill with faces, nothing more.

When you have the cylinder created, extrude all the vertex at the extreme you want to cap, extrude (E), confirm without move (Return), Alt+M (at center). That's all.

BTW, thi's a developper forum, you cand find the user forum at: http://blenderartists.org
