T.T I keep trying to do this but every time I go to apply the surface onto the body cage, it doesn’t come out right; its all choppy. Could you tell me why this is happening?

@Aggror89 I tried using that method, buy they dont get permanently attached, is any way to do that?

@RIGENSTEIN Yes I often had that problem that in some way the vertices were not connected although ‘connect only’ was selected. A way to so solve this problem is to ‘welding’ the 2 vertices together. select both the 2 vertices and click the weld button in the geometry tab of your models modifier.

Hi I am using the 2010 version and I have a problem with the refine and connect part, I did exactly what the tutorial said, but instead of creating a single vertex, it creates two vertex, one on top of the other, I did the whole process again, and the same problem happened, is there any checkbox I should mark?, I didnt watch the others tutorials, I only need to learn how to make the knight.

@Aggror89 i do it but the vertices dont merged 😦

@donaltios make sure that vertices are connected to each other and that there are no overlapping vertices . Use the weld tool to merge vertices toegether.

You are great! I have to do a homework (3ds max scene off chess set) and I have a big problem with modeling a Knight. Other figures are easy to make by Line -> Lathe, but the Knight…
So, thank you!

I don’t suppose you could make a tutorial on how to make the Doctor Who intro sequence could you?
