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

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
