Hey, I'm trying to combine two surfaces to make one. I saw lots of people saying create new surface and paste the two in the new surface. Is there a way to create a copy besides doing the copy base, because that keeps causing my AutoCAD to error.

You don't use Copy to paste surfaces into a new surface. Instead, create a surface, expand the sutrface in Prospector, go to Edits, right-click, select Paste Surface, here you be able to select the surface to paste.
Why do you need a copy? pasting the surfaces uses the data from the originals and maintains a dynamic connnection.
Pasting A & B into C. If A or B change C will see that change. If you make copies I dont think changes to A will be reflected in A copy
