Good afternoon everyone!

I have a quick question.

I am looking for some clarification on the modeling techniques used to print.

Does is matter how your different meshes interact?

For example, I have two cubes modeled and I want the two cubes printed together.

Does the mesh have to be a single mesh, or can it simply be two cubes intersecting in the 3D space? Will this print? (the meshes are both watertight and non-manifold)
