Very noobish question

I’m modeling a flat pill shape. I start out with a cylinder, delete half of it, and then duplicate it. Now I need to connect to two cylinders, but I can’t figure out how to combine the half circles in one object. How do I do this?

Nevermind. Ctrl + J

You could have used the mirror modifier.

you mean like this?

select the edges you want to “connect” press F, then select “skin faces/edge loop”

I was loooking at a modelling tutorial and the dude said that a common mistake by newbie’s (being one myself) is the overuse of segments and rings in their mesh. You can get the same results with 6-12 and subsurf. Might help with rendering etc but thought I’d pass the info on

yep yep! agree… i normally start wtih 12 segments/rings.
