Hey all. I had a question that has been bothering me lately about low poly modeling.
I was told by someone on here in a thread that when they're doing their high poly models, they'll go ahead and use as many intersecting pieces of geometry as needed, but when they do the low poly they'll try and have as much of it welded together as possible.
I was hoping someone could tell me why people do this? What is the benefit?
In the following pic, I'd normally separate out each of those different colored sections as their own mesh, as that's how the high poly was.
