Hi(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In 3D modeling world, people refer to 3 sided polygons as tris, 4 sided as quads and >4 sides polygons as N-gons. Now, if I understand right, actually N-Gon refers to any. So instead of saying Triangle or Quadrilateral, I can say 3-gon and 4-gon and it would be correct, right?

What about vertices?What suffix is used or it would make sense to be used to refer to a vertex's degree/valence?

Cheers

# Polygons can be designated as N-gons. What about vertices?
