joining two very detailed and small parts together

so I need to join two parts together but they are very very detailed and small so anytime I try Fusion crashes. I would have designed it as one piece but it is just too complicated as a the two parts had to be designed using python to draw them. 


any suggestions would be appreciated

I think I understand - so you want to make the 2 arcs into a semi-circle? 

Did you try to assemble them?

  1. Create a new design for the assembly and save it.
  2. Right click on one of the components in the data panel, then click "Insert into current design".
  3. Select a location for the component, then click ok.
  4. After the component is imported, it can be assembled by using the joint command

would this not cause issues when trying to 3d print the part as a whole
