Create Polygon Meshes Quickly

Generate fast polygon meshes using Boolean operations!To quickly create a single polygon mesh from two or more objects in Shade 8 (revolved or extruded items, Curved Surfaces, etc.), all you need to do is put the objects into a single Part (Tools>Part>Part) with the name of each item after the first preceded by a plus symbol ("+") as shown-

- and then select the entire part and use the Convert>Convert to Polygon Mesh operation to combine and convert all the pieces at once, generating a single mesh item from all the parts-

- which can then be further edited, or exported.
