Create edge at the intersection of two faces?

Post by Puckey » Sun Jul 21, 2013 7:08 pm

Greetings, gentlemen.

Is there a simple way to accurately create an edge at the intersection of two faces (and then likely merge the faces together, as in subdivision)?

I have two separate objects which I wish to merge into one but for further editing I'm going to have to create a new edge where one object passes through the other. I understand how this would be possible via subdivision and merging, but I was just wondering if there were an easier way.

Thanks!

I'm sitting, waiting, wishing, building Blender in superstition...

If for some reasons the add-ons don't do it, here's an old tutorial published several years back in Blender Art Magazine http://blenderart.org/2007/05/07/plane- ... -tutorial/ . It rather nicely outlines principles, and by applying them, one can calculate the edge at the intersections of other types of objects, too.

I'll check that one out too, much appreciated!
