Low Poly tools

Low Poly tools

Here are the tools I am using in the low polygon modeling videos.

1. Merge Vertex tool
2. Delete History
3. Freeze transformations
4. Extrude
5. Split polygon tool
6. Bevel
7. Cut faces tool
8. Insert Edge Loop tool
9. Select Edge Loop Tool
10. Slide Edge Tool

Nothing fancy, just basic Maya tools. Merge Vertex tool only appeared in Maya 2009 though.
