Grasshopper Button Solid Union from Intersect Menu

The “Solid Union” button from the intersect menu is a basic button with only one input and one output node. The input is two or more Breps or Rhino solids and the output is the result of combining those two or more solids into one. Essentially, the buttons performs the same function as the “Boolean Union” function does in Rhino. However, it is far more flexible than using the Boolean function in Rhino because it can be used at any point in a sequence of manipulations with other Grasshopper functions. The example posted with this post demonstrates how a simple “Solid Union” can be used to cut and slice two Rhino solids into layers as one object, rather than cutting and slicing each individual Brep or Rhino solid.
