enter image description hereI want to neatly connect these two meshes together (the spokes on the rim)?

How can I do this? enter image description here

Hi everyone, I made a new rim and did what you say, but if I want to bridge the short sides it will be somehow crossed (see photo). Tried everything but couldn't get it done. What am I not doing right?

    $\begingroup$ Hello :). What have you tried so far and where exactly are you stuck? $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 23, 2021 at 11:09

    $\begingroup$ it would help if we could see the topology, because it may allow you to simply use bridge edge loop for example $\endgroup$

First, join your 2 objects with CtrlJ.

Then you can use the LoopTools > Bridge. First thing, open the Preferences panel and activate the addon called LoopTools, then:

  • Bevel the inner edge loop, cut a hole:

  • Select the edges that you want to bridge, right click > LoopTools > Bridge:

  • Tweak the factors in the Operator box (Segments and Strength):

  • $\begingroup$ OP (or future user) might not have loop tools activated... worth adding a note on that :) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Quite likely, OP needs to join the meshes first. (Select both objects and press CTRL+J) $\endgroup$ Commented Mar 23, 2021 at 12:50
  • $\begingroup$ oops you're right too $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I understand what you mean, that means I have to redo the rim to make the edges match the spokes. It is namely 5 spokes. $\endgroup$
