Dual extrusion merge

Hi

Just played with the merge function in Cura. If I multiply one model, mirror it and click on merge it results in a single object, which looks like the single object before. Is there a way to merge it by hand. As I am not sure how cura would know how someone wants to merge two models automatically, i think there needs to be a manual way to merge. Or do i need other software to merge models?

    The dual-extrusion merge currently ignores the scaling/rotation/mirror of 1 object when it merges it into the other. So you need to make 2 different STL files. You could mirror 1 part, save it as a new STL and try merging that, but I think you'll generate an odd offset then.
