Cinema 4D works with three types of polygons: Triangles (three corner points), quadrangles (four corner points) and n-gons (more than four corner points).

Polygons are edited in much the same way as points and edges. Select a polygon by clicking it.

To select multiple polygons (or to add to the selection), Shift+click each polygon that you want to select. Or select polygons using a selection tool such as Live Selection.

To create new polygons, use the Create / ObjectPolygon Pen command. Now add points to this object using the Add Point tool.

To delete the selected polygons, use either the Delete command from the Edit menu or press the Del key or Backspace key.

You can quickly access commands for polygons from the context menu by right-clicking (Windows) or Ctrl/Cmd+clicking (Mac OS) on a polygon.
