Join

Ctrl (CMD) + J

The Join command connects objects together to form a single object.

Join turns lines into polylines, curves into polycurves, surfaces and polysurfaces into polysurfaces or solids.

Input

  • Curves, Surface, Polysurface, Extrusion, Mesh, SubD

Notes

Steps

To select objects one-by-one

  1. Select an object (curve, surface, polysurface, or mesh).
  2. Select the next object.
    To select a surface edge as a curve to join, see sub-object selection.
  3. When you are finished selecting objects to join, press Enter.

Command-line options

Undo

The Undo option removes the last selected object from the join operation.

JoinDisjointMeshes

The JoinDisjointMeshes option allows joining meshes that do not touch into one object.

See: SplitDisjointMesh command.

SubDJoinedEdges

Specifies how SubD edges are joined.

Crease
  • SubD objects will merge into a single SubD that cannot be exploded.

  • Overlapped SubD control polygons will merge when possible.
