Joining surfaces...
show user profile  graphix72
What's the best way to join these surfaces?

It's supposed to be a funky martini glass. All surfaces are editable poly. I guess it would be out of the question to ask about making a fillet... that's only for NURBS, right?
In any case, I was thinking about using boolean union to join these, but that tends to be messy. Does anyone know a better way? I can't have any part of the objects sticking inside each other because these will be glass, and you would be able to see that. I just want them to be joined as smoothly as possible. Thanks!

i would use this as a base and block out something that will be subdivided and connected instead of using individual pieces

Use the 'Bridge' tool in edit poly and just taper and use heaps of segments.

Ill see if I can wip something up. :)



All this took was two cones, edit poly and a bridge. So I'm sure you can do better but that's how I'd do it.

Edit: Maybe pull the middle edges of the 'stem' out to make it more round? Up to you. hope it helps. :)
