All I'm looking to do is union join two meshes together. They're not overly large or complex and I can't find any faults with them (Mind you I'm new to this). If anyone can help I'd be very grateful! It shouldn't take long at all for anyone with experience. The file is linked here.


The inner mesh Ear Deco has overlapping faces.

  1. Go into edit mode Tab. Select B and hide H the outermost faces. You will find additional faces inside the mesh. faces inside mesh
  2. Go into face selection mode Ctrl + Tab > F, select the unnecessary internal faces and delete them X. delete faces
  3. The boolean modifier will now work.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you very much! That's been huge help and providing both these excellent instructions and a final model is great! It means I can take the model onto the next stage and still learn from you. I didn't know you could hide external faces, thanks! :D $\endgroup$ – Acrimonious Mirth Oct 4 '16 at 9:32
