Update: Sorry there was a mistake I didn’t notice that the planes on both sides weren’t at the same position on the Y axis (been in ortho view the entire time). I have since moved them to the same level and Merge by Distance is working now. Should I delete this question?


I need to merge these pairs of vertices (each with the one immediately next to it). So far I have been doing it manually (select two at a time and merge them at centre), which works for this model but in the future what if there is something with a huge number of these pairs?

I tried Merge By Distance and used various values for the Merge Distance but they ended up either not merging at all or giving me unexpected results

unexpected result1 unexpected result2


Last time (How to merge these pairs of vertices?) the solution was Bridge Edge Loops and it worked really well.

This time, the situation is slightly different because it's two perfect circles this time. I want to have roughly the same poly density everywhere on this object, so I tried moving the left edges back and then using Bridge Edge Loops, but then I still had to eyeball adjust them afterwards (I really don't want to eyeball things if I can make them precise to begin with)

How do I merge these pairs without having to do it manually each at a time?

  • $\begingroup$ @moonboots the shapes are a series of circles with a common centre, so each pair of vertices would need to be on a straight line pointing to the centre $\endgroup$ Mar 13 at 23:03

if i understood you right, you can do this:

select the vertices you wanna merge:

then bridge edge loops as you know it:

select the old vertices:

then dissolve edges

    $\begingroup$ I think this could work, thanks. Although I did just merge by distance the other day. I’ll keep your method in mind I think I will need it at some point $\endgroup$ Mar 15 at 21:47
