I've elongated a cube and copied it twice. I've then manipulated those two copies to look like the two non-vertical parts of the K, partially intersecting the vertical part. I then tried using booleans to merge the geometries into a single object.
However, when I try unioning two objects, one disappears. I've looked and it seems to be because of the duplicated geometry (the fact that I copy and pasted it?), but I can't really help it here, and remove duplicates removes 0 vertices.
How do I properly merge three objects that are transformed copies of one another?
