Chapter 3. Creating Primitives and Text > About Polygon Primitives

About Polygon Primitives

Polygon primitives, like NURBS primitives, represent a collection of frequently used predefined surfaces. These predefined primitive surfaces can save you time in creating objects and give you a head start on creating more detailed shapes.

Maya includes six polygon primitives: sphere, cube, cylinder, cone, plane, and torus (Figure 3.36). You can use polygon primitives to speed workflow because each face that describes the surface has already been drawn for you.
