Edges in Merge Blocks tool
5 Attachment(s)
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!

in your pdf, you are mentioning merge block. i call it collapse block it is not merging

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...

I think you don't understand me or I'm not explained well. I want a block like this (I think maybe itīs not possible).

ok, I'm maybe wrong, but i think it is not possible...

Thanks Diamondx. I think itīs not possible too.. but I had to ask to ensure.

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

Thanks Far. Iīm not refering a L-Block. What I wanted to do itīs something impossible.
