Working with the Bridge tool

The Bridge tool really acts just like its name. It allows you to create spans between two different sections of polygons. Now, I've got a very simple scene file that we're starting with here. It's just two cubes and they are arranged along the X-axis. What I want to be able to do is to create a little bridge or span between these two objects going this direction along the X-axis. So, this is a multi-step process. The first step in this process is that I need to merge these two objects into a single polygon object. So, to do that, I'm going to select both objects in the Object Manager and I'll right-click.

And in the contextual menu that comes up, what I want to do is connect both objects and then delete the old objects. So let's do a Connect Objects and Delete. That leaves us with just a single object. You notice our scene hasn't changed its look but the Object Manager has changed. We now have one polygon object that contains all those polygons. Now...
