We’ll heavily use the merge tool in this entire series as it is the basis of “KitBashing”. What is KitBashing? Essentially it is taking existing polygonal meshes, converting them to voxels in 3D-Coat and then “Bashing” them together to much more easily create your ideas. Generally it is better geared toward hard surfaces, which is what we demonstrate in this video and the KitBashing series.
