V

**Vertex**

A **vertex **is a point placed in the space. More than one vertex are called **vertices**. With a 3D cube, for example, the vertices correspond to the corners. They define the shape.

- Linking 3 or more vertices together creates a face.
- Linking 3 vertices creates a triangle.
- Linking 4 vertices creates a quad. Linking more than 4 vertices creates a polygon.
