Editing Imported Mesh layers, Rejoined sections after a middle section is deleted


#1

Hello, (I am new to Rino) I am trying to figure out how to bring mesh sections back together after deleting a section from the middle of a mesh. So if I have a mesh cylinder, and I remove the middle of the cylinder it is split into two sections but the mesh layer highlights both when i’m trying to translate on the z axis. (*i’m trying to create a shorter cylinder) 1. How do I make separate sections of mesh, 2. Is this the easiest way to do what i’m trying to do?

Thank you!

Hi Reid,

meshes do act a bit different in Rhino compared to regular NURBS geometry. To get two mesh parts sepererated after deleting the middle section you might try _SplitDisjointMesh command. Also note that you can _Join mesh objects which do not touch or intersect each other.

does that help ?

I knew it was something simple haha, working tired at 3am in my spare time makes this harder then it should be

Thank you!
