View Full Version : how to merge after triple polys for export to RealFlow?

I understand that model integrity is very important when exporting a model to RealFlow.

I created a bucket in LW 9.6, removed the outside of the bucket (leaving just the polys that would be in contact with the fluids), and tripled (RealFlow wants triples, not polys).

It was suggested that after a triple on the polys that I do a merge.

Merge Poly's just flattens the bucket - and Merge Points doesn't do anything.

Am I missing something? What kind of merge was I supposed to do?

How can I insure model integrity before an export?

Thanks!

I think they meant merge points, in case you had different groups of polys that were not actually connected. I have no problems with regular tripled geometry going into RF.
