= Polygon =
A series of [[Vertex|vertices]] that define a plane in 3D space. Most [[RT3D]] [[Engine|engines]] use polygons to make the surfaces of their objects. A polygon can be made up of 1 or more [[Triangle|triangles]], like a [[Quad|quad]] is made of two triangles, a pentagon is made of three triangles, etc. Some engines support multiple polygon types, but triangles are the most common. Some people use the term polygon to specify a quad, others use it when talking about triangles. Polygons are also called polys, or sometimes [[N-gon|n-gons]]. See also [[Face|faces]], [[Fan|fans]], [[Quad|quads]], [[Strip|strips]].
