View Full Version : Closing a Hole in geometry

I have a model that I bought and when I subpatched it a few holes appeared because I remove parts of it that did not like being subpatched.

Question: What is the best tool/ tools to close these holes?

Currently I'm playing with the bridge tool, but not having much success because the surrrounding polys dont have the same number of sides.

Its hard to say without seeing the model. Can you post a screenshot? Subpatches can only be made from 3 and 4 point polygons(unless you're using Catmull Clark subdivision).

The holes are under the eyes

Can you go back to the original model, merge points, triple, and then subpatch?

Can you weld average points on a subpatch?

Yeh for me it would be to not delete to original polys. Find out why they won't suppatch and fix that.

oops, sorry, misread. ignore link.

well, that's a tricky thing, either you retopologize the nearby areas, or you make trigons.
my advice =trigons. then use CC instead of SubP.

(tris are only tricky for anims)
