Using the Brigde Tool

The Bridge-Tool creates a bridge between edges or faces. To use the tool you need to select on both sides the same number of edges or faces.

By default you get something like this:

Two cubes combined into a single object

Linear Blend the default settings

You can change the default Curve Type Settings to Blend and you will get something like this:

In the Blend mode you do not have any of control how the blend will occur. You need to create a Bridge with the options set to “Smooth path + curve”.

Initially the bridge will look identical to the “Curve Type: Blend” or “Bridge type: Smooth path”. You need to switch to “Wireframe”-Mode then you can select and adjust the control curve.
