What is Bridge tool

(Shortcut: V)

Use this function to automatically connect two selected points, lines or faces. The Bridge tool works by constructing “a bridge of polygons” in the Edit mode.

How to use the Bridge tool

  1. Enter the Edit mode - double click on any object or start from scratch - add a new object in the left panel. Alternatively, select object and go to Edit tab.
  2. Select two points, lines, or faces. They must not be already connected. Hold Shift while selecting the second face, line or point. They have to be in the same object for the Bridge tool to take effect.
  3. Click the Bridge icon in the bottom panel or press the V key.
  4. The Bridge jog wheel appears. You can adjust the strength, a number of segments, twist and change the continuity of the bridge.
