merge toolBodies - Merge

Time to read: ~1 min

The Merge Tool is the reverse function of the Split tool. It combines sets of data from multiple bodies into one body.
Important: The function of this tool is not to be confused with a Boolean operation. The only result of using the Merge is that surfaces that were otherwise determined to be separate are now grouped into a single body. Locations, intersections and similar may still be present.

Option: All, Selected, Preview, Clear & Apply

Using the Preview/Apply buttons allows the data to be visualized before permanently changing the data. By using the selection for All Bodies or Selected (if there are multiple) allows changes to be made on a per body basis where desired.
