Hi, when I slice with Cura I may get two different kinds of slicing of parts essentially being one.

For example an object made of two cubes. If they are not united before creating the STL they become sliced as the top one. If I unite them and then create the STL they become sliced as one object (bottom).  The bottom is solid whereas the top will break along the interfaceline. (Yes they are both appearing solid but a destructive test show that the top is breaking along the joining interface).

The question : is there a way to make cura slice such parts as if they were one object? Ive been playing with Mesh- Fixes but it doesnt seem to do what I expected: slicing the top similar to the bottom figure.

There should be only one figure
