    How do you merge two stl files to make a single surface?

    Karen Swan

      Hi,

       

      I am wondering if someone out there might be able to help me....

       

      I have two surfaces files (stl) that I would like to make a single file so it can be manufactured into a metal part using CNC. One of the surfaces was made in Solidworks but oriented in a different software and aligned to a surface file of a tooth. Now I want these stl files to become a single surface.

       

      At the moment I have tried opening the files as an assembly and saving as a single part but when I open the part there is nothing there.

       

      If anyone think they might be able to help that would be super as I have tried a number of different softwares and methods, and it has stumped me for some time now..

       

      Best, Karen

       

      P.s I have attached the files I would like to merge.
