Naked edges despite a successful join one at a time approach

Hi,
V5
I have offered up touching surfaces and trimmed overlaps, to end up with surfaces that I then joined one at a time, successfully. no warnings, all joined and became one colour.

The intent being to form a solid.

I zoom naked edges and it shows me 32 !!!

I have healed 4 and I am left with 28, yet my meticulous trimming and joining saw all go well.

Is there an easy fix to these or is it a case of dealing with each one ?

I then have to boolean the blue to this, (Move it such that B goes to C) as there is a lip at ‘A’ that using the join surfaces method, trim away blue using purple, end up with ‘A’, a thin sliver, but one cannot have a surface sticking up above another and join them.

Am I right, boolean union the only way to make one solid from the two of blue and purple ?

select all, then join-

then run the cap command.

closed up everything here.

Wow !!!

EXCELLENT

ABSOLUTELY CHUFFED.

the showedges command with naked edges highlighted will show you where the problems are.

fwiw here is a video on making watertight files-
