I’ve posted about joining open vectors before:
Is there a way to join two open vectors? - Software / Carbide Create - Carbide 3D Community Site
At the time, @WillAdams said just select and Join, and that worked for what I was trying to do at the time. I didn’t know why it didn’t work for me when I first tried.
Well I am cleaning up a traced vector & have the same / similar issue again. That is, I am trying to join 2 open vectors and cannot join them - the Join Vectors command is simply not visible when I select multiple vectors.
The plume on the helmet is 2 vectors which I am trying to join together.
However, when I select the two vectors the Join Vectors command is not visible. I’ve tried Grouping them but the behaviour is the same.
What am I missing?
One solution was to individually join both vectors and then boolean union them together, and then clean up again after. However, I don’t understand why but the resulting vector had many more nodes that I originally had.
Is the geometry selected able to be closed?
There should only be one open span — post the file?
Are the ends of the vectors in the same spot? Not sure the tolerance, but they have to be really close.
If they are, can you post the file?
Aah, I see - no, there are two open spans (one on each vector), so it doesn’t know what to join.
This is the file - I want to join 2 open vectors into a single closed vector, rather than manually re-draw the smaller part node by node.

If you zoom in, you can see that there is a disconnect:
If you draw in geometry to bridge that:
and select everything:
you can then join vectors as expected:
Right, so as @Tod1d said they have to be really really close. Got it!
In the response from Will the Plume on the top of the helmet looks a lot like Elvis Presley’s hair. His biography movie is out right now. So is this really about Elvis and not the Knights? I think I saw Elvis yesterday at the grocery store. Not sure but maybe. Jailhouse Rock On!
Well we may see the King at a Knights game - everyone knows he is still with us!
I also thought it looked like Johnny Cash’s hairdo, early in his career.
