I am new to Blender and I am trying to create the Euro Currency symbol. The way I have tried to accomplish this is by- Adding Text (the letter C), from which I - Convert Object Type to Mesh. Then I create 2 rectangles manually with Control + Left Moue Button and place/edit them in the right position. This is where my question comes in> How can I merge these objects to create one single object and eliminate the overlapping?
(Currently, when I fill the mesh with faces and extrude, I get a dark area where the objects overlap one another in my render, this is what I am trying to eliminate)
