after looking for a solution all the day,I surrendered. I would like to know how to join two disconnected bones that are part of the same armature.

I tried to select the two points of the bones and then pressing F to complete the gap but they don't stick. Check here what happens :

Here some shots of the final result

In order

1) In Edit Mode I select boneA and press alt + f in order to switch its direction (as you can see is the only bone having the opposite direction respect the others bone of the tail of your bird)

PS remember when you use alt + f your bone will switch direction AND will lose every connection with the other bones; for this reason i will do step number 4) and number 5)

2) I take the boneA and i move its "head" near to the tail of boneB

3) Now I follow the step i tell you before: select boneB - press shift - select boneA (remember the order is important); in this way you'll have both bones selected.

4) Press Ctrl + P and click Connected

5) In the end to keep your boneA connected with your bird's tail (i.e. the boneC and the others) i add a Copy Location in boneA

  • $\begingroup$ check this picture : psychonews.it/dati/2016-04-20_00-08-31.png. I see that you haven't joined one bone with the upper one,but anyway I see that there is a dashed line. What's the difference between a dashed link and a non dashed link ? thanks... $\endgroup$
