Consolidate points doesn't fuse primitives together.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've got a problem merging polygon curves together into a single curve. When I consolidate points using either Clean SOP, Facet SOP or Fuse SOP it outputs a curve with fewer points, but the vertex count remains the same and so does the primitive count.

So if I make a rectangle out of 4 lines, then I have 8 points and 4 primitives. When I consolidate the points I get 4 points, 8 vertexes and 4 primitives. What I'm expecting is to get 4 points, 4 vertexes and 1 primitive.

I can't seem to figure this out.

This is a bit stupid but perhaps it helps.

I hope somebody knows a more straightforward way.

That's very clever not stupid. I could turn that into an asset and reuse it.

Thanks,

what about

Fuse SOP

then Join SOP with Only Connected checked

then maybe one more Fuse if you want closed shape

Excellent Tomas! I knew this was one for you!

I used your method and added some nodes to get a curve and original point ordering.

Awesome. Join SOP was the secret node I couldn't find.

I can now replace a dozen nodes with just a couple.

Thanks guys.

Hello!

 

I am trying to fuse multiple primitives into a single one.

This is a branched structure. I get some odd results where I get a single primitive but the ends are also connected.

Suggestions? workarounds?

Hip file attached with some examples and trials.

 

Thanks!
