I'm building a human spine, was trying to keep the polycount as low as possible in order to get a usable result for texturing right away. I used single torus objects for the spinal discs, now In order to give the spine its natural curve (built it vertically straight thinking it makes the most sense) I'd have to join all vertebraes and discs to one object, which leaves me with quite a chaos of overlapping mesh everywhere.
Wondering if it was a mistake to build it with single objects... What is the best way to get this halfway clean so it's usable for decent texturing? Retopologizing the whole thing the "old fashioned" way? I was somehow thinking the Quad Remesher would clean up the surface/the overlapping parts, basically retopologizing only the surface, but it seems to remesh the internal stuff as well, just as it is:
Still kind of new to a lot of things in 3d, so any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks
