Hi Emile - do you mean Join as in Rhino’s join command or ‘bridge across’ a gap so that the edges match? As I see it so far, you’re asking how to build a transition there - the smaller surface(s) between the larger ones above and below. Please post a file…

_MergeSrf seems to do a good job here:

You could try with variableoffsetsrf - keeping tangency on one side. Then after - edit the non tangent side to your wish.

Hi Emile - you have multiple surfaces coming together at all angles, none smoothly, here:

If that is not what you intend, I’d fix that first - what do you intend there? Smooth along all edges?

Without knowing a bit more, I’m just guessing, but an arrangement something like what is in this file may do-

Hi Pascal, thanks for you answer.

I would like to do a transition of the both part on the top to have like only one part.

the problem is the difference of shadow bitween this little part (front off the hull) and the rest of the part

thanks you
