3D - Segments

I've started learning how to use 3d modeling software. It's not as intimidating as I expected, but I probably would feel more comfortable with it if I'd taken the time to learn vector graphics.

Still, I'm getting the hang of it slowly. Working with the three edit forms (vertex/edge/face) reminds me of working with the three segment levels in metrics reporting (view/visit/visitor). The model/data behaves differently depending on which one is selected and at first the results seem random. But once you know what granularity you're dealing with, it's pretty handy!

Now...if I can just make this blaster *pew pew* :3
