How to merge 2 quilts ( or surface) simply.

Alex_Huang006Alex_Huang006 Member Posts: 12 PRO
I am really frustrated with the surface function,  really bad experience.   --- ( -100x score )
Below is two simple surface, I want to merge these two. So it will be useful to split the next solid part.
In Onshape case, I have to experience 5 steps to come to the result. (Split -- Delete -- Split -- Delete -- Boolean),
In Creo / ProE case,  I only need one step -- "Merge". 
Pls explain to me, how to be simple, how to get the efficiency ?  What if the surface is complicated ?

    The steps you took to create this shape with 2 surfaces is correct. There is no merge feature. However, the creation of quilts as construction geometry is a very ”Creo” way of doing things. If you can share what you are trying to do I can suggest a different and possibly better way.

    I'm interested in seeing @NeilCooke's tips here. I've found myself doing similar things when trying to split some body into some kind of interlocking parts.
