I have two meshes. I'm trying to combine them by keying W and selecting Bridge Edge Loops. However, I can't select the vertices on both meshes for some reason. Any thoughts? Heres a pic:

    $\begingroup$ You can't edit two objects at the same time and you can't join geometry from two separate objects. Join them into a single mesh with Ctrl+J in object mode. $\endgroup$ Jun 4, 2016 at 20:31
  • $\begingroup$ There is an addon that does that, I forgot it's name, I was watching a youtube about addons and it was mentioned in it $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Yeah, Ctrl + J is the only way to edit them both in Edit Mode. (Object mode to Ctrl + J) $\endgroup$

Tab out of Edit Mode, select one mesh, Shift select the other, and key Ctrl + J to join them. Tab back into Edit Mode.


If the shading does not look weird (darker) on one or both of the meshes, ignore the following paragraph.

Select one vertex of the weird one(s) and key Ctrl + L to select the rest of it(them). Key T to toggle open/close the Toolshelf, go to the Shading/UVs tab, and click on the Recalculate button. Key A once or twice to deselect the mesh(es).


Do read this paragraph.

Key Alt and RMB while hovering over one of the edge loops. Do this for the other edge loop as well. This should select the whole loop. Key W to open the Specials pop up menu and select Bridge Edge Loops.

  • $\begingroup$ I tried joining them and screwed it up but found out i can duplicate it, and just change up the other one. I solved it but thanks for the help. I may try this out next time i mess up like before $\endgroup$
