Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Combining objects , part of Maya Essentials 2: Polygonal Modeling Techniques.
Now when you start modeling, you may actually model your object in pieces, and there will…be times when you'll need to combine those pieces back into a single object.…So here I have a fish and a fish one.…So I actually I have two separate objects in my scene.…Now we can bring those two together using Combine.…Now before we do this on the fish, let me just show you this kind of more theoretically here.…So I am going to actually go over to my layers and just hide my geometry here, which is my Fish layer.…
And let's just go ahead and create two objects here.…Let's go ahead and create a sphere and go ahead and create a cone, left-click and drag…to set our radius and then left-click and drag again to create the height.…Actually, I'm going to go ahead flip that cone over.…I'm going to go ahead and just rotate it.…In fact, I'm just going to rotate it 180 degrees here in X.…Let's go ahead down to down my INPUTS here, and I'm going to dial down my radius so it's…smaller than that sphere or just around the right side.…
