Default Merging STL Files

EphemeralMemory is on a distinguished road
Hey, thanks for reading this post.

The question I have is a relatively simple one, I have 2 STL files; one of brain vasulature for one brain hemisphere, and another is the brain cortex for the other hemisphere. What I want to do is merge the meshes (I don't care about geometry, all I want is a nice picture), so that I can see a full brain, but one hemisphere for vasculature and cortex each.

Attached is a picture of the problem I have; I can bring both meshes onto the plane, but I can't move one separately from the other (so I want to re-negotiate the points of one mesh while keeping the other the same).

Do you have any ideas?
