How to join closed curves

I want to 3d print a text as a continuous solid block so I tried the following approach:

  • use “TextObject” command to create the text curves
  • Move the curves so that they overlap
  • Select all the curves and run “Join” command

The last step (i.e joining curves) is what is causing me trouble. I am getting “can’t join closed curves” message.

Right now I am having to manually trim the overlapping curves to achieve this. But I was wondering if I am missing something basic here. Is there a simpler way to do this? What I was hoping was a join or boolean curves like the way BooleanUnion works on surfaces…

Hi Numan,

You are looking for the _CurveBoolean command.



Thats it! Thanks for such a quick reply.
