I've made an example house out of blocks. Is there any way to automatically rebuild my model into one solid mesh without unnececarry polygons?enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe try dissolve faces $\endgroup$

There isn't one. Because you created individual blocks, even when they're joined they're still independent meshes. Tools like dissolve faces only work on completely connected meshes.

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah... but maybe you can recommend me another "solid" modelling style i don't know about? For me the only that convenient is to build architecture out of blocks. $\endgroup$ Sep 16, 2018 at 10:44
  • $\begingroup$ Face extruding and scaling should work well for what you're after. For example, say you have a wall that is one face. Select the face in edit mode, press 'E' to extrude, then right-click so it doesn't go anywhere. Now press 'S' to scale it down, 'G' to grab and move it into place, the extrude again, into the wall this time. Voila! A pocket in the wall, all one mesh! Play with that technique for a while, I think you'll like it. $\endgroup$
