Low-poly mesh to spline wireframe mesh?
show user profile  ap-projects
I would like to make some wireframes from simple meshes. My idea was:
Create a box->editable poly->edit the mesh->in edge level, Create Shape From Selection->At Rendering (Editable Spline), I set the Thickness and Sides.
I think it will be OK, but the whole Editable Spline is separated to more Splines, I can't weld the vertices.
My aim is to make something like this (This is mine):





My website - game development, 3d modelling, game reviews and more.

A spline vertex (knot) can only be part of one or two segments. So you can only weld together end vertices of open splines.

For what you're after, a better way would be to select all the polys and inset them (by polygon), then add a shell modifier. You'll get a single object with no open edges.
