View Full Version : Welding Verts

I cant find the last thread I started and since the search function doesn't work I wll humbley ask you guys once more.

I have finished half of my models chest, Now I want to mirror it and weld the two sides together.

How do you do this? I can weld verts that are on the same half but I cant weld verts from a different model.

Any info would help.

attach the second half of you model to the first with the Attach button under modifiers, then weld away.

okay last night I tried to attach my half of the model with the mirriored half. I clicked on one half of the model clicked attach, then I clicked the other half of the model nothing happened, in fact it wont let me click on anything while the attach button is down.

So what am I doing wrong?

I did learn how to collapse verts though, very useful.

maybe because its a reference, like a mirror.
try deleting the mirror, clone the one half, then mirror it, then attach.

it sounds like what your doing is right, with the attach button.

hmmm yeah I havent tried that.

After work or maybe at lunch. Its not like I can think about much else.

I think that is what the problem is. You can't attach a referace to anything. I had that same problem when I first started, and that is what I did to fix it.

Just remeber if you have been using the mirror ref trick to build your model, and now you delete the ref and make a copy, you will have to change both sides. So welding the two pieces should be the last thing you do before skinning ;)
