Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video The Combine and Separate commands, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…When you're modeling there are times when…you'll want to combine multiple objects into one.…Or separate objects apart.…And for those we can use combine and separate.…Now let's take a look at a simple object here.…Actually this is three objects.…Now usually we'll stick parts together using the outliner.…But this is for parts that move in relation to each other.…So for example.…If I take a look at this robot arm here, you'll see…that I've got a right shoulder that's connected to the right arm,…that's connected to the hand, but each of these will probably be…moving in relation to the other when we actually get to the scene.…
But we have this hand here and you'll see that we've got…parts of the hand that really don't move relative to the hand.…And those are these rings that are on either side of this.…So, if I take a look at this wire frame you'll see that the hand…is actually composed of these rings and…these rings are actually full pieces of geometry.…But because they're not moving relative to the hand,…I've combined them all into one piece of geometry.…
