How to make shape from multiple shape outlines

Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m trying to add all these shapes together, but when I use the Boolean property I get something totally different. Any help? I know I can expand strokes but then I no longer get a perfect shape.

Try Xor. Sample attached below. Black is original construct. Blue is after Xor.

Have a close look at my example. No excess nodes. Id say it the way you created the top and bottom curves. I used copies of the original circle, positioned them and use divide. Then removed unwanted parts. Check out the attached file, it was saved with history so should show intermediate steps.
