I've been trying to cut my object in half in modeler, then mirror the remaining half, before welding the points together.

But there is always a big line through the middle of my object that stays there when I render it.

Can anyone help me get rid of it?
Thanks

I'm guessing you had a polygon on the origin of the axis along which you mirrored. In which case, you've still got this unwanted polygon buried in the middle. You can lasso this in Modeler and delete it. Another way to find errant polygons is by using the Statistics pane ("w" hotkey). Delete any 1- or 2-point polys.

Not to worry, you're not alone in that regard. By the way, if you haven't already gotten wind of it, I can highly recommend a bunch of excellent video tutorial by William Vaughan here: http://www.newtek.com/forums/showthread.php?t=77002
