Attach or different objects

Hi there,

(Im using Maya.)
I was wondering if anyone could tell me if its better to combine different objects just by pressing them together and then combining them or is it better to make it one object by attaching the vertecies together. Or does this depand more on the model and what you are planning to do with it?

There's no better way. It's as you said: whatever works best for the particular model you're working on. Organic models may be better suited to being welded or not. mechanical models are generally suited to being made up of unwelded components.

Agreed. In Maya, you can select several different objects, and edit the verts or polys at the same time as though they were one object. You can also use the attach tool to combine meshes.
