​Hi, Just a quick tutorial on how to make perfect circular cutout from a mesh in blender. This technique saves me so much time. :) I'll be using blender 2.68 for this tutorial.

Step 1

1. Load your mesh, for this tutorial i'll be using a simple plane subdivided 2 times.

2. Enter 'Edit Mode' and select the face that you want to cut. Subdivide it 2 times as shown.

3. Still in 'Edit Mode' , hit SPACEBAR and type 'to sphere' or hit SHIFT + ALT + S . Drag your mouse away from the 3d cursor.

A perfect circle ! Now you can delete or extrude the created circle. This work on whole mesh too.

Have fun :)
