Can someone tell me why it doesn't work to use the weld function on a square within a square thing like the attached drawing? To achieve the desired effect I had to draw 4 rectangles, duplicate them, rotate 45 degrees, and then weld.

Tom, you can't do it quite that way. You need to use the "combine" feature on the two square parts. So the inner and outer of each square needs to be "combined". Once you do that, you'll have 2 objects, you can then weld them and get the end result.

You're trying to weld 4 object. When you make those 4 become 2, they will weld.
