Shapeways backend will do the Boolean Union operation on model that touch like "shell 1 goes in to main shell 2 like 0.5 mm" , when it fails you can go to or use meshmixer to have another go with remesh function

On high poly count meshes over 900.000 you rather do a remesh with meshmixer if applicable to lower the poly counts down and do boolean function on them.

For checks and measurements use neftab basic here
