Can Modo conect vertices?

Plz help. Modo can conect vertice x vertice or vertice x edge? I´m new at modeling and my firt try was wings3d, wich has this kind of tool (connect). What should I do to get the same results?

2. Does anyone knows a good tutorial about head/ body modeling at MODO ?

thanks for your attention.

Select your first point, then your second. Goto Geometry | Vertex | Join. Accept defualt values.

you dont have the connect tool in modo yet unfortunately. You have to select the edge slice tool and connect the vertices with that for now.

thanks, but the result is not what I want. For exemple: I have a 6 sides poligon and I want to creat 3 four sided polys inside the 6sided ngons. How can I do that?

Or "Join Average".
It welds/connects at a middle point between selected verts.

select 2 or more verts and use the split poly tool. it will connect them like in other apps ( but dont get too wild with your selections, it breaks at times. )

You have to use a tool called Spikey.
It creates all traingles with a common mid point in the center of the 6-gon.
And then you can modify the triangles into quads.

I´m a little baffled with this thread? There´s no "Weld" command in Modo?!

if you used wings you would know that connect doesnt mean welding at all. what it does is , you grab a selection of elements and it creates edges between them, that join them.

in modo welding is done through the join command( i think thats the name ). its interactive too.

Uups, sorry. Maybe i shouldn´t post too much before actually having Modo...(deeeeemoooo)

Yes, also called connect in Max, LightWave (Via DI's poly tools) and XSI. some times called Connect edges too. I don't have Modo so I don't know either but if it follows the old Lightwave naming scheme, it's most likely the "Split" command that was mentioned above.

Don't know if that's been said but besides the "Join" and the "Join Average", you also have the
"Geometry -> Vertex -> Merge" function just like the one in Lightwave.

The ripper.
Observation is the key
