How can you merge or get rid of polygons that share the exact same points? Like if you have a cube, and in the top view, select each corner and weld. Then you have what looks like 1 polygon but is really 8. How do you make it so there is only 1? Is there a plugin to do this or any other way? Thanks a lot!

m is the hotkey for merge points .

merge points, then unify polygons.

Unify eh? Thanks guys, I'll look at that tonight!

A cube can only have 6 sides not 8 :-)

Merge and Unify and even Merge again won't solve the problem.

You need to Unify and then bring up the Poly stats panel, then select and delete all the 2 pointers.

That was just bad math on my part. :) Unify did exactly what I wanted. Thanks guys! I should have asked here before spending 1 1/2 hours looking for a plugin on flay.
