So I've been trying to learn blender, and I wanted to make a gun model. I got a reference image, and I've been trying to merge some vertices in a way that looks like this:


Unfortunately, the result looks like that:

enter image description here


I could make it the hard way and connect the vertices from both sides like this: https://i.gyazo.com/cac033f1ca0cc122a8bbcd666a763564.mp4

But it isn't really effective. Is there a way around it, or do I have to do it like that everytime? Sorry If my english is broken, but I hope you'll understand what I mean.

Thanks in advance!

edit: I've been trying to make that the images show up without entering the external links, but I couldn't do that, sorry!

  • $\begingroup$ Hi. For images to show up they should be added using the built-in uploader. See: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/75491/… $\endgroup$ Feb 26, 2019 at 14:52
  • $\begingroup$ Alrighty, I'll keep that in mind the next time I'll decide to post something. Thank you very much for your help! $\endgroup$

To merge vertices to corresponding vertices on another loop..

Select the sections of the loops you want to merge, (with an equal vertex count) and use CtrlE > Bridge Edge Loops, with the 'Merge' option checked in the Tool region, or Options panel in 2.8.

enter image description here

as Ray Mairlot has commented, you may intend to merge vertices at opposite ends of existing edges.. in which case you would AltCtrl select the edge ring, followed by X > Edge Collapse.

    $\begingroup$ In this case it looks like ther eare already faces inbetween their vertices, in which case, Edge Collapse would be better. $\endgroup$ Feb 26, 2019 at 14:53
  • $\begingroup$ @RayMairlot you could be right.. I'll edit... $\endgroup$
