I have a simple vector spaceship design for a retro "Elite" style game. It was originally an SVG. So far I have:

  1. Converted from curves to mesh
  2. Joined to a single mesh
  3. Duplicated the meshes to give two parallel meshes one above the other

Now I'm trying to join the two meshes to give a "solid" object. I've done this with a previous imported SVG by following the same workflow and selecting each vertex then using "F" (new edge/face from vertices). However, with this example, the new edge is created at the "wrong end" of the edge, not between the vertices I selected. I think this is something to do with metadata about the edges that has been retained from the SVG after importing, but I can't work out how to fix it and make the vertices behave how I want.

Imported, converted joined SVG:

Duplicated with a few adjustments: enter image description here

What I want (edge indicated by arrow): enter image description here

What I get after hitting 'F' (wrong vertices are joinined) enter image description here

Did you duplicate in edit or on object mode?

It should work properly if both planes belong to one object.

  • $\begingroup$ I think Object. Which is correct? I can redo the duplication. I tried it in Edit mode, and it now appears to be working correctly. I didn't know duplication was different in either mode. I'll mark you as the answer. $\endgroup$
