Connect two points to create an edge

Recommended Posts

Hi!

Is there a way I can connect two points to form an edge? I made this short screen recording showing how this can be done in blender.

I think the poly split node should be used to achieve this. But the process takes way too long and the bevel does not create a circle. I'm sure there's a better way to do this. 

This is a screen recording of me trying to do the same in Houdini - https://share.getcloudapp.com/4gunmP6k

 

Thank you!

Is it possible for you to record with something like OBS and process through https://ezgif.com/maker or just provide screenshots with annotation arrows pointing for emphasis? These links are quite terrible.

@konstantin magnus has a tutorial that relates to the particular task of creating holes from points - you may be able to adapt this method to suit your needs.

Personally, I would suggest selecting the faces around the point, using a PolyExtrude with a small inset and scale the front face to 0, and fusing the close points together.

Thank you @Fenolis, but nowadays I would rather suggest using the circle from edges-node.

Here's a procedure for dynamically adding holes on a parametric surface:
