Merging Triangles

How do I merge these three triangle faces, which are all on the same plane, into a single pentagonal face? Thanks!

Select the edges and dissolve them:

(Menu) Mesh -> Delete (X) -> Dissolve Edges

You can do it in 5 simple steps:

  1. Select all triangles you want to delete.
  2. Press X.
  3. Select Faces from the context menu.
  4. Now select all the edges of the pentagon you want to fill.
  5. Press F

  • Faces selected, and F, if well-formed, or:
  • Faces selected, and X > 'Limited Dissolve', allowing you to control by angle, (or other parameters,) or:
  • All internal edges selected, and CtrlX dissolve..

among others, I'm sure.
