Default Connecting neck to body

Hi,
I've been following the tutorial, and i attatched the main head piece to the neck no problem, but when i tried to connect the body to the neck, they both dissapear after i click on union.

When i undo, i get this error message: Result: polySurface2 polyBoolOp2


Does someone know what i did wrong?

Thanks

Sure,
You simply use the split polygon tool to make a rough outline of the hole you're trying to make. Delete the unwanted faces to create a hole in one or both shapes (depending if they have a hole already) Then you select both shapes and click on "Polygons" then "Combine". After that you can stitch your shapes together using merge vertices. It takes longer, but you get more control. It’s always good to make sure your shapes will line up. The more you plan ahead the less editing you’ll need to do afterwards. You might not need to cut out holes if your shapes already have holes or the shape is flat. For example if you’re attaching two planes. Anyway, hope that’s clear enough. Feel free to ask if you have any questions.
