Shared vertices between 2 meshes

Hello,
I’ve got two surfaces with control points in different places along the edge.


These are joined as a polysurface and meshed with these options
2
The result is this

But what I am trying to get is this

Has anyone got any suggestions as to how to achieve the result I’m looking for?

Hello - you might get away with AlignMeshVertices if you join the meshes into 1 and specify a large enough distance.

Hi Pascal,
Thank you - ooo that looks like a really useful command. Is there anyway of dealing with the open vertices that are left behind after running it…?

Hmm. not easily in V6 that I know of - that is, not without introducing triangles. In the V7 WIP there is InsertEdge that can get things lined up better with quads.

Introducing triangles isn’t a problem - how would you do it with tris?

Hi Hannah - If those are not actually gaps in the mesh then MatchMeshEdges may help; if they are holes, then FillMeshHole.
