How to combine adjacent surfaces?

This is all one body - The edit, make solid command gets me close but I still wind up with a whole bunch of internal stuff and stagaltites that I can't get rid of.

I also have the two pieces as separate bodies in the same .mix file.

Edit > Separate shell, maybe Analysis > Inspector, maybe 50 other ways.

 

Going to need a lot more info, do a screencast and as always the .stl file too.

Maybe this trick helps to join adjacent shells:

If there are two or more shells combined to a single objects as

Go to EDIT/MakeSolid. Set its SolidType to Accurate. Now you can set a positive OffsetDistance big enough to bridge the gap between the shells:

This result being the active object run MakeSolid in Accurate mode again. This time set OffsetDistance to the negative value you used in the step before:

The result should match to the source object but with smoothed valleys. You may refine that result setting the source object as a target and use either SCULPT/Attract brush or selection based SELECT/Edit/AttractToTarget:
