Weld Modifier

The Weld modifier looks for groups of vertices within a threshold and merges them, collapsing the surrounding geometry.

The Weld modifier.

Mode

Method for choosing which vertices are merged.

All

Merge includes all geometry including loose parts.

Connected

Merge only includes attached geometry i.e. the modifier will not merge loose parts together.

Расстояние

Maximum distance that the vertices must have each other to be merged.

Only Loose Edges Connected Mode

Only collapse short edges which are not adjacent to any face. This is useful for example to stitch the seams used in cloth simulations.

Vertex Group

When the Vertex Group option is selected, only vertices with weight above zero will be affected by the modifier.

Invert <->

Inverts the influence of the selected vertex group, meaning that the group now represents vertices that will not be deformed by the modifier.

The setting reverses the weight values of the group.
