Merge planes

Where a model contains very close planes, as can often occur in imported models, for example, the Merge Planes command allows the you to merge two planes by selecting a destination plane and then a source plane.

  1. On the Edit tab, click Merge Planes.

    Existing Level, Frame, and Slope planes are displayed in the active view.

    Note: If the view is cluttered by having all the plane types displayed simultaneously, and you only want to merge Levels, consider switching off Frames and Slopes in Scene Content.
  2. Pick the destination plane.
  3. Pick the source plane.

    If the planes can be merged, everything on the source plane will be moved to the destination plane, and the source plane will be deleted. If the merge is not possible, a message is given in the Process window and the model will be unchanged.
