## 3DS Max - Compound Objects - ShapeMerge

In this tutorial, we will learn about a new Compound Object called ShapeMerge. This object will help you to imprint/Stamp a 2D shape onto a surface, also to cut out the 2D shape from that surface, also, you can invert the cutout operation. This is a useful tool if you like to create a road on a land/landscape or cut out a text, or any other closed shape pattern from a surface.
