polyCreateFacetCtx([append=boolean], [maximumNumberOfPoints=int], [planarConstraint=boolean], [subdivision=int])

Note: Strings representing object names and arguments must be separated by commas. This is not depicted in the synopsis.

polyCreateFacetCtx is undoable, queryable, and editable.

Create a new context to create polygonal objects

Return value


In query mode, return type is based on queried flag.


append, maximumNumberOfPoints, planarConstraint, subdivision
Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
subdivision(s) int createqueryedit
number of sub-edges created for each new edge. Default is 1.
planarConstraint(pc) boolean createqueryedit
allows/avoid new facet to be non-planar.
If on, all new points will be projected onto current facet plane.
append(ap) boolean createqueryedit
Allows to switch to polyAppendFacetCtx tool
maximumNumberOfPoints(mp) int createqueryedit
Allows the ability to set a upper bound on the number of points in interactively place before polygon is created. A value less than 2 will mean that there is no upper bound.

Flag can appear in Create mode of command Flag can appear in Edit mode of command
Flag can appear in Query mode of command Flag can have multiple arguments, passed either as a tuple or a list.

Python examples

import maya.cmds as cmds

# Create a new poly facet create context, set it to add four vertices per new edge, then switch to it
cmds.polyCreateFacetCtx('polyCreateFacetCtx1', s=4)
