Combine Mesh Problem

Hi everybody,

So I'm at my wit's end. I've been working on my first photo realistic model of a head and I have no problems duplicating special one side but when I combine the meshes to merge the verts the duplicated ear and eye disappear. I've tried duplicated just the head mesh and then the ears and eyes because they havent been merged yet with the head thinking that may be the problem, but for some reason when i duplicate the ear it doesnt translate well and I cant use it. Any ideas as to why this is happening?

Hey man,

Assuming your using Maya, try setting the distance on your merge tool down, or make your head bigger. You can also try using mirror geometry under the mesh toolbar.

I'm going to try that too. I just combined the mesh before duplicating special and it worked.

Thanks Again

Try deleting history before mirroring.
