I just started using solidworks a few days ago. I need help in combining 2 different surfaces together. I've attached a picture to this post.
Thanks in advance!
Dennis, welcome to the SW User family and forum.
You only have one surface body, those 'edges' are the tangent edges where profiles change.
May I recommend, work with solids and use surfaces as construction geometry to build solids.
Best, Jason E.
While you have 1 surface body, that surface body is made up of 5 different faces.
That is about as combined as it is going to get. However, you can adjust the look of tangent edges if that is what you are looking for. It is only a visual thing though.
Why do you need one face? If you post your file here we can help you.
I would second Jason's suggestion to work with solids until you become comfortable with SW. Surfaces can be a tricky concept to grasp.
Dennis, you can use the Knit Surface command to combine 2 surfaces together.

Based on his picture, the faces are already part of the same body.
to get one smooth surface (one face) in the sketch which is in "surface extrude 1" use the "fit spline" command:
2015 SOLIDWORKS Help - Fit Splines:
It will interpolate the lines and arks to a spline.
the extruded sketch will then create one smooth surface (one face) from entities which you have in the sketch.
I tried this as an example.
You can use Surface-Knit Feature to combine surfaces.
1) Enable Surfaces Toolbar,
2) Select Knit Surface
3) Select Surfaces to Knit together.
