Default PolySew for Maya?Merge oppisite polys fpr holes or extend them

PolySew


For Lightwave,they have PolySew for making inverse or bridge extrusions.
I'm not seeing anything like that for Maya.
What I want to do is a Boolean without haveing to go back and Fill Holes by selecting edges.
Is there a easy way in Maya?
Say you have a cube(6sides).
On to opposing sides you have a smaller poly centered in the middle of these two polys.
I want to tunnel made to each of these threw the middle of the cube,sort of a boolen but with the tunnel being filled with just the one hole.

Or perhaps Im trying to go about this the wrong wat?

Thanks for any help

I don't think they have a command for that right out of the box. takes a few more steps. That is one option I wouldn't mind seeing come to Maya soon.

Hi wgreenlee,

I'm not sure if this is quite like the polysew thing for Lightwave but it looks a bit like it... PolyBridge... -->
