View Full Version : Merging points

06-26-2005, 12:54 PM
ok, heres my problem. Im making a car and in modeling it on one side then mirroring it. When i mirror it i merge the points but it also merges the points that i made when i bandsawed and cut some polygons. i tried merging after the mirror with fixed measurements but i still cant get it to stop merging those points. Anyone ever have this problem? or know how to fix it?

You could volume select the middle of the car (press ctrl-j) then try merging...

It sounds as if you've got multiple parts on a single layer in modeler that you're then mirroring. I like nice crisp edges on my auto parts. Before I mirror, I place each piece (hood, roof, body, etc.) all on different layers and then mirror each, merging the points that way. Then I mass cut and paste back into a single layer. Haven't found an easier way.

If I'm misreading what your intentions are, my apologies. Otherwise, hope this helps at least a little bit.

This happens to me sometimes on character models. What I usually end up doing is turning off merge points for the mirror tool and then manually select the points on the middle axis and then performing my merge.
