Suppose we have created two hemispherical surfaces, as shown in the next figure:


Two separated hemispheres


Let's also suppose we want to connect them to end up with a capsule-shaped object. To achieve this, the connect2Surfaces command can be used the following way:

command> connect2Surfaces
Select the first surface (Press enter when done or Esc to Cancel): (Select one of the hemispheres)
Select the second surface (Press enter when done or Esc to Cancel): (Select the other hemisphere)
Please Wait...

Or even, if we are dealing with named surfaces, and the hemispheres are named "hemisphere1" and "hemisphere2":

command> connect2Surfaces -p hemisphere1 hemisphere2
Please Wait...

The final result after the execution of this command is shown in the next figure:
