COMBINE ALL AVAILABLE BODIES?

I have a linear pattern that varies the spacing and number of instances dependent on equations. At the very end of my tree https://i.imgur.com/nOKRjvh.png I have a combine feature. I do this to hide some overlap in solid bodies which I had to do because of some design constraints. That way, in the drawing the overlapped bodies don't show. Not showing because of combine feature at end. Showing without combine feature

 

My question, is there a way/a boolean to have the Combine feature capture ALL of the bodies so i can change the equation and instance count without having to re-do the combine feature to capture the additional bodies?

 

Alternatively, is there a way to make the linear pattern feature, combine/merge all bodies? This would be ideal. I tried selecting features instead of bodies within the Linear Pattern feature, but it will not work correctly.

 

Thanks!
