What is the method to join points across the mirror edge?

merge at edge

  • $\begingroup$ it's not possible, you need to apply your modifier $\endgroup$ – moonboots Nov 25 '18 at 13:53
  • $\begingroup$ all I want to do is what Lile does in this tut at 7: 03. Is it just a matter of lining up to the edge then? youtube.com/watch?v=0QT1GNMevfc&t=579s $\endgroup$ – Talltail Nov 25 '18 at 14:10

    $\begingroup$ he doesn't create an edge between the 2 vertices, he just sticks the 2 vertices so that they're one, you need to activate the Clipping option of the Mirror modifier if you want to do it $\endgroup$ – moonboots Nov 25 '18 at 14:14
  • $\begingroup$ 'Merge' on the mirror will do.. then scale the vertices you want to weld about your mirror center, in the mirror direction, to 0. $\endgroup$ – Robin Betts Nov 25 '18 at 18:51

If you want to create an edge between a vertex and its mirrored image you need to apply the modifier. That said, if you want the 2 vertices to stick together (and merge into one unique when you'll apply the modifier), you need to activate the Clipping and the Merge options of the Mirror modifier.

  • $\begingroup$ oops you're right ;) $\endgroup$ – moonboots Nov 25 '18 at 23:37
