TSplines export for Paneling Tools?

Hi, I’m trying to “panelize” a polysurface exported from TSplines. The problem is the paneling tools plugin reads the object as several individual surfaces instead of one object. I am left with multiple grids instead of one grid that covers the whole object. I found a plugin called Evolute but would rather use the paneling tools plugin. Any suggestions for how to join the surfaces together or convince the Paneling tools to do so?
