Hi All,

Love the subD script many thanks MAX - playing with base shapes primitives. am I missing a step in displaying the control points? as would be would good to be able to move the control points on the primitive base shape prior to using the subD command.

The middle SOLID shape is a cube with chamfer edges once the chamfer command is run show points no longer visible over shape.

Thanks

Hi Alex - you can only turn on control points for a solid if all the faces making up the solids have their "underlying surfaces" with matching control points along their shared edges.

If you have faces that are made up of trimmed surfaces where the "underlying surface" of the face is larger than the visible face boundary and there are trim curves on it cutting off a portion of it, that type of structure won't be able to have control points turned on for it while it is still joined together. You can use Edit > Separate on such an object to break it into individual separate surfaces though, and then turn on control points for those surfaces.

There is some more detailed explanation on this on this FAQ answer here:
