polyMergeFacetCtx [-activeNodes] [-exists] [-image1 string] [-image2 string] [-image3 string] [-immediate] [-mergeMode int] [-name string] [-previous] [-reset] [-toolNode]

polyMergeFacetCtx is undoable, queryable, and editable.

Create a new context to merge facets on polygonal objects

Return value


In query mode, return type is based on queried flag.


activeNodes, exists, image1, image2, image3, immediate, mergeMode, name, previous, reset, toolNode
Long name (short name) Argument types Properties
-exists(-ex) create
Returns true or false depending upon whether the specified object exists. Other flags are ignored.
-image1(-i1) string createqueryedit
-image2(-i2) string createqueryedit
-image3(-i3) string createqueryedit
Contexts support up to three icons that represent the tool associated with the context.
-name(-n) string create
If this is a tool command, name the tool appropriately.
-activeNodes(-anq) query
Return the active nodes in the tool
-toolNode(-tnq) query
Return the node used for tool defaults
-immediate(-im) edit
Acts on the object not the tool defaults
-reset(-rs) edit
Reset to default values
-previous(-pv) edit
Reset to previously stored values
-mergeMode(-mm) int createqueryedit
The merge mode. (at first facet : 0, in between : 1, at last facet : 2)
Default is in between.

// Create a poly plane
polyPlane -w 10 -h 10 -sx 10 -sy 10 -n pPlane1;

// Create a new poly merge facet context, set the merge mode to merging the second face to the first face, then switch to it
polyMergeFacetCtx -mm 0 polyMergeFacetCtx1;
setToolTo polyMergeFacetCtx1;
