Combine faces in planar surfaces


#1

Is there a way to combine surfaces that have been joined or boolean unioned?
The purpose would be to get rid of the extra lines and seams left after these operations.

Please see attached image. (1. = before 2.=after)


#2

MergeAllFaces

but it can be buggy, and then the workaround is to do it manually:

MergeFaces

or even more manually:
extract the coplanar surfaces
delete
cap
repeat

Thanks!

Jorgen, mergeAllFaces was tuned up a good deal some time ago, so it should be pretty reliable now - there was a period where it was not - if you still find it to be buggy, please post an example if you get a chance - thanks.
