    merging points

    Ok here my problem. Im modeling a car and im only doing half of it then mirroring. when i mirror, all of my points get merged including the ones that i bandsawed and cut. So i turned off merge points when i mirrored. But the points that i dont want to merge still do when i try to merge them manually. If anyone can plz help. its a very frustrating problem lol
    thanks

    I only have LW7.5d but are you selecting the points you want to merge only? I tried it and LW only merged the points I selected.

    If I'm getting you correct, you have the body of the car as one section/group and then the doors/windows etc as other groups.....

    If that is correct, then place the groups/sections in different layers..

    then mirror the layers individually and selct the merge as needed..

    Can you post a screen grab of your mesh? I have had this exact problem. I Might be able to help if I can see it.

    Here is a cool plugin by Terry Ford that will automatically delete the left or right side and also do a automatic mirror on the x. (separate copmmands by the way not all at once so you can use it just to mirror)
