I have (downloaded) a model, it is rigged, with weight, which (I guess) cause the mesh become some vertex group. can I replace part (or all) of the model vertex? with another mesh?

  • $\begingroup$ you can but the new mesh won't have the same vertex groups, unless you've created some vertex groups for this other mesh, that have the same names $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ so that mean I will lost all the rig, right? unless I rig it again. I mean the vertex group is not manually grouped or named, it is (might be) automatic generated when rigged. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ You can try the Data Transfer modifier with the previous object as Source, but if it doesn't work you need to parent With Automatic Weight $\endgroup$
