Unification of Objects


This operation unites selected material domains. The result of the unification is a single object, which takes on the form of the sum of all participating domains. This operation allows the creation of a single object out of many different domains, or the creation of domains that contain cavities, but are composed of one single object.

The operation will unite all overlapping material domains, the border lines will be automatically removed.

If there are domains with different materials, then the new domain will assume the material of the domain that was first selected.
