View Full Version : Merged Polys disappear??

Hi all,

In modeler (LW8.5), I am working on a face and I merge (2) polygons and they disappear and leave a nice hole (working in SubD). I thought that the new polygon might have the normal flipped, but that's not the case - it just goes away.

I'm working around the mouth, so grabbing points and making a new polygon has it come in faceted.

Am I missing something when I merge polys?

Thanks in advance,

When you merge the two polygons into a new polygon, does the new polygon have more than four points? The Subpatches in 8.5 only work with three- and four-point polygons.

That was fast!

Yes, in fact the resulting polygon will have 5 points. So I guess I have to deal w/it and delete and make new polygons.


And I figured out the faceted thing. I have the new polygon in faceted mode. I just select the new polygon, hit tab, and we move forward.

Thanks for the quick help!:thumbsup:
