    Default Topology-Workflow - Merging Objects (by Rastaman)

    Topology-Workflow - Merging Objects (by Rastaman)



    In this tutorial we will merge two mesh-objects into one clean new mesh by mainly using the topology-feature in a very quick and easy to handle way.

    i already try this and it works well but as i can see you also didn't solve the low-poly-retop-finger-hole problem!

    Thanks to all.


    @Yiannis: yes, the fingers are indeed a problem.
    I didn't had the time yet to try an easy solution for that, but I will think about it later.

    @ andreseloy: Yes, but no more time for that in the moment.
    But I think the .pdf is clear enough about all what has to be done to master this in every individual project. The steps are almost very simple to adapt for ones personal needs.

    Thanks for the reply, just thinking that every time you open Z3 you can record zscript without need aditional time (like to make a pdf) but anyway thanks for the tutorial is a great compilation of the "state of the art".

    Super awesomeness! This should be in the zbWiki. Along with a zScript or video to boot. (it deserves it!)

    Sweeeet!

    Thanks Rastaman!

    Wow, I knew you could do this, I'd figure you'd have to stitch them together by hand. But it seems they can mostly be glued together automatically!
