Merge Solids or Surfaces

Merge two or more solids or surfaces. Solids are merged by removing shared faces while surfaces are merged by suppressing shared edges.

  1. From the Geometry ribbon, click the arrow next to the Edit tool set, then select Merge.
    Figure 1.

  2. Choose Solids or Surfaces using the guide bar selector.
  3. Select the solids/surfaces to merge.
  4. Optional: On the guide bar, click to define merge options.
  5. On the guide bar, click Merge.

Merge Solids or Surfaces Using the Context Menu

Quickly merge solids or surfaces without opening the Merge tool.

  1. Navigate to the Geometry ribbon.
  2. While in idle mode, select the surfaces or solids to merge.
  3. Right-click in the modeling window and select Edit > Merge Connected or Merge Surfaces from the context menu.
    Merging surfaces using this method is dependent on a defined feature angle. Surfaces which have a greater angle than the user-defined value are merged. To set the default feature angle, go to File > Preferences > Geometry and edit the Geometry feature angle option.
