Join George Maestri for an in-depth discussion in this video Merging vertices and edges, part of Maya 2015 Essential Training.
…Let's take a look at how to connect parts of…your model together without using something like the Bridge Tool.…Now typically in Maya we will use what are called the merge commands.…So, merge components or merge vertex.…So, here I have a coffee cup and one typical problem that…I always see is that we accidentally knock holes in our models.…We delete something that we don't want to delete.…And then we have to kind of sew it all back together.…So let's do that with this model here.…I'm going to go into Face Mode and I'm…just going to select a couple of faces here.…And then I'm going to go ahead and hit delete.…Now this creates a hole in my model.…And I need to kind of patch that together.…Now we can use the merge commands to actually help us do that.…But before we do that we kind of need to.…Create the additional geometry that we need in order to sew this back together.…So I'm going to start off with this top version part…here and then we'll go ahead and do the lower part.…So in order to get this extra detail, I'm going to use.…
