How can I merge two or more surfaces together to have one surface?
I have a IGES file that contains a lot surfaces. how can I merge these surfaces together? (in Catia V5) I want to have on surface
Maybe this solution is too easy, but you only need the JOIN command

you can use join command and select a surface from the dump body and then right click on the box of join and click on distance propagation option, it will select all the surfaces and then go on the merging distance option.Give the merging distance of 0.01 and click on ok, you will get the joined surface.
apart from using the Join Function, if you want more precision over the surfaces, and given if the surfaces are NURBS and untrimmed, you can go for the function - "Concatenate"
here's a link on how to use it
