How to get rid of that nasty artifact ? ;(
« on: January 18, 2008, 01:24:26 am »

Hi all,

I've been working on the house project. I got stuck with this artifact and I dont know how to solve it..

Take a look at pics. I'll try to explain it step by step:

1. I used a roof object (which is basicly a simple prism);
2. I've subdivided one face a few times and extuded it a bit;
3. I've extruded the botom face..
4. ..merged a poly and joined side edges;
5. I've extruded a face inside the object..
6. ..and deleted the unnececary points (some edges and side faces vanished at this point),
7. so I drew missing edges, filled holes and got this nasty artifact (actually two  :-[ )..

My gues is that when (at point 6) I deleted bottom corner points, top corner points (check out pic 8) decided to leave some relation (or whatever) with the extruded points ? Hmm.. Sounds crappy.  ::) Is that what happened ???

I also included a8s file. Just fill hole and you see what happens..

Please help.  :-\

Well actualy that was just a sample file. The original is much more detailed. Thats why I asked for help instead of doing it other way.. ;)
Anyway, its just the third day I'm using this app, so there are many tools I didin used already. When I saw your fixes I got the idea - why not to use a cut faces tool. It helped alot, couse you can cut faces, which is obvious and cut EDGES, which adds the point on the edge. Now that is cool. ;)

Thank you ;)
