Hi guys,

First of all I hope you have great weekend!

I open this thread because I have some doubts with block edges when I use "merge blocks" tool. Here I present a simple example.

I have an O-grid block (picture 1). Now, I want to merge this blocks (picture 2). I do this and then I get (picture 3). I would like to get a block like I underlined in red color. And now I suppose that you guys are wondering why am i asking for this. Iīm making this question because I thought that if I get a block like in the last one in pdf file I would have a good quality in the trailing edge. I did it but it didnīt work. Anyway this post is to know about the edges in "merge blocks" tool. I hope that I've explained it good.

Thanks guys!

Youīre right Diamondx. It was a mistake, should be "collapse block". Anyway... do you know how to get a block like red underlined? Or... is it not possible?

in the blocking tab, click on merge vertices, then collapse block, select first the edge then the block associated to it...

Are up talking about L-block (aka Quarter Ogrid) ? Which is certainly possible.
