Weld modifier ???
show user profile  Zman
Where did the Weld modifier go ??
Is it now changed to "welder" modifier ?

It is not working ...

I need a modifier that will take a mesh and automatically weld vertices once they are closer than the threshold I set. this is perfect for some medical animations I make.

"weld" modifier used to do this ...
I see "welder" modifier, but it doesn't seem to work ....

Any ideas ?

Are you looking for "vertex weld"?
I can only offer an alternative for now.
In this video there is a short MCG tutorial for making a weld modifier.
