I'm just new to 3D studio, so exuse me for the simplicity of my question.

I did a shape with splines, and now I just want to get all those splines connected to be only one, so I can extrude properly my shape.
I tried select one and to do Geometry>attach but nothing happen. When I click on Attach mult. nothing appears in the list.
I must have done something wrong when I created my splines.

Does someone know ?

Yes - Splines are not yet Geometry. You need to use either the Weld or the Weld Target tool to attach them. Then you can extrude.

Ok, thanks for your answer.
I've selected my vertex and welded them one by one.
It did stick some of my splines together. Now I ended up with only 3 splines that refuse to stick together.

Here is a picture to show my situation that I believed to be simple.
my 3 splines to be stuck are the outer circle and the shapes on its right and on its left.
How would you join those 3 shapes ?
