Join meshes together smooth transition

Recommended Posts

Hi guys! 

I want to create a simple vase(revolve) with curved handles on the sides(curves + sweep) . I managed to create the vase and the handles. However I didn't succeed in joining both meshes. I tried several techniques : merge + polybridge tool, boolean union + subdivisions, polygon to vdb -> convert to polygon again

Do you have advice for modelling the vase?

Thanks for your time.

here's one way, the polyreduce comes in handy as a declutterer, try disabling it and you'll see the crappy results

ps: it would be polite to upload your file to show your effort and also helps ppl see your problem straightaway. For me, it's a real turn off when someone asks alot of questions yet always wants to keep things close to their chest and never uploads anything.

Once you have laid out your model properly a mere fuse node will do.

Here is a quick attempt to get you started. It still lacks orienting the handle to the holes, though.

Hi. I have tried merging the objects using a boolean operator and a bevel node (as shown in Vusta's file with the Kettlebell). I ajusted the exclusions parameter for the bevel node but i didn't get the result i was expecting. I think i'm missing something in my understanding. I'm going to try the Fuse method. I have provided the hip file this time ;)

I have uploaded a picture of the result i'm getting. This looks fine now, but if I add a subdivide node it doesn't look good at all. I wonder why :huh:. If you have any ideas please let me know.

Have a great day !

Magnus thanks to your file I discovered the node : CircleFromEdge it proved to be really usefull. I could not understand all the vex so I decided to do it manually. I'm pretty happy with the result. I will have to do more vases and cups so i will go the procedural way next time, i have to improv e in vex :P.

Thanks for your help guys ! Feel free to add anything if you want.
