Merging two STL files

Posted · Merging two STL files

Hi all

I've added a second extruder to my Ultimaker2 and all works as it should.

My question is I've modified a file that has a nozzle size indicator that clips on the from of the printer, however the numbers it are a bit difficult to read at first glance.

So I drew in Solidworks a dial with 'cut' numbers and another file with the extruded numbers in the exact same place as the number 'cuts' on the dial.

The issue is when both are brought into Cura in the correct orientation the extruded numbers are placed above the dial indicator not recessed as desired, could someone guide me as to how to merge the two files so that the extruded numbers sit flush in the 'cuts' made for them. Please see the images below.
