Description

The Triangulate command will triangulate all selected objects or faces by dividing faces with more than three edges into multiple faces, all with three edges. The program will determine where to add the necessary edges, but the object is guaranteed to have only three-sided faces. If a face has been made extremely non-planar to the point where it can't be drawn, then it can't be triangulated either. Triangulate can be used in object or face selection modes.

Notes

  • Triangulate can be useful for exporting to some file types or programs which only support three-sided faces.
