hi, im having a problem with using smooth proxy. i had a sphere and deleted half of it, i then used create polygon tool and went around the ring (snapping to each point) to create the flat side. i then selected the two objects and combined them. i then extruded the face of the flat side. now when i apply a smooth proxy, the too objects that were orignally combined (extrusion & Sphere) seem to smooth out seperately of eachother, ive gone through the smooth proxy settings but see nothing wrong. any ideas?
Combining poly shells doesn't automatically merge the overlapping edges. You have to use the Merge Multiple Edges tool or the Merge Vertex tool. Until you do that, you still have two separate and distinct poly shells.
In future, try the 'fill hole' command instead of manually appending a poly. It generally works like a charm and saves you a lot of clicking.
