I'm a beginner with blender so this is probably a very basic question.

I have this basic model below. I've ended up with a lot of unwanted geometry that I want to simplify. I wanted to start by merging the two selected faces below but no matter what I try to delete or merge it just destroys the geometry.

How can I achieve what I want to do (which is combining all of the unwanted geometry, either starting with this merge or some other way?)

Select the faces you want to merge, press Del or X and click limited dissolve.

  • $\begingroup$ This is what I tried originally, but nothing happens when I do it at all. it does work when I try it on a simple cube, so I'm assuming something is different here? $\endgroup$ – jcoder Oct 8 '16 at 11:28

  • $\begingroup$ I don't know what had gone wrong but I started again and it worked exactly as you described so thank you. $\endgroup$ – jcoder Oct 10 '16 at 8:35
