How to join 2 solids?

Hello, I'm making this crankcase cover, the design is composed of the internal symbol and the outer edge that are connected by lines. Here in onshape the drawing is done well (it seems to me) but when I go to put it in care to make the gcode I have the following problem: the lines that connect the symbol with the outer edge are detected as another separate object (see image ), I need instead to be printed together making it a single block. Is this a problem with my drawing or slicer (cura)? And how i can resolve it?

    @andrea_vicenzi Does the Boolean -> Union option work for you here?

    Take note also that instead of doing a boolean union at the very end of your feature list, you can just adjust the ExtrudeRevolve, and Thicken features in your feature list to use the Add option (at the top of the dialog) instead of the New option.
