I'm trying to model a can of soda and when a got to the tab I ran into some trouble

the tab is in two parts, I merged the points, connecting the parts together (if I even did it right) but when I subpatched it it had a split in the middle, how can I get rid of this? :confused:

Check that there's no hidden internal faces and no 2 Point Polys (Use Polygon Stats Panel to check and select) then Merge Points, Unify Polys.

not sure what you said, can you explain that?


thanks




this might answer the question on whether it has hidden internal faces or not.

Sorry I can't tell from the pix. If you selected some polys around the joint I might be able to tell by looking at the Normals.

When you join two objects together, always make sure that you delete the connecting faces, the internal polys.

See example below
