Combining Curve and Mesh?

UPDATE:
Okay, I find out I could use boolean after converting the curves into mesh and deleting duplicated verts.


I’m creating a pendant for 3d printing.

I traced a drawing in inkscape and saved it as .svg then I imported to blender as curves. I extruded the curves to give it some solid form. I wanted the drawing to indent onto a coin which I created another separate circle as a curve in Blender.

In order for it to print, I must have one solid object as a whole connected.

My current issue is, how do I combine the coin shape with the drawing design shape? Do I have to convert to mesh but even so, connecting the two through mesh is very tedious as I have so many edges to deal with. Any advice?

I’ve attached a screen shot of what I need to combine.

Assuming ur curves and base circle are two different object. I guess go to object mode Select both of them and in the toolbar(press T) select join… I have used this myself many times… And then try removing doubles in edit mode… That should do

Select both objects, export to .stl, upload to https://netfabb.azurewebsites.net/ and download. Your model is now solid and manifold, freddy to 3dprint.
