  • What tool do I use if I select several polygons and want them to become just one larger and simpler polygon?

    Could you expand on what you are trying to do.

    It can be interpreted in different ways.

    If you have several separate polygon objects then use: Function > Connect.

    A new combined object will be created. Delete the original component polygon objects.

    Follow this by running the Optimize command to delete any stray points.

    You may need to use the Weld Tool to actually connect points together. It will depend on whether you need a single solid mesh or if you just want several polygon objects grouped into a single unit.

    Other options include the Melt (polygons) tool or Collapse (points) tool.

    Be careful as these create n-gons or triangulation. You want to keep the mesh as quads wherever possible.

    HTH. Cheers, Alan.
