Then use merge verts with a very small distance setting and it will work fine. Alan __________________ Technical Director - Framestore Currently working on: Your Highness IMDB

It's a snapping tool x = snap to grid c = snap to curves v = snap to verts there are a couple more aswell.

Post more pics explaining what you mean. Alan __________________ Technical Director - Framestore Currently working on: Your Highness IMDB
