Within the context of local type IIB models arising from branes at toric Calabi-Yau singularities, a systematic way of joining any number of desired sectors into a consistent theory is presented. The different sectors interact via massive messengers with masses controlled by tunable parameters. A mirror procedure, applied in the type IIA case, is also discussed, allowing certain intersecting brane configurations to be joined through massive mediators. Possible embeddings of the local type IIB models into compact Calabi-Yau manifolds will also be mentioned.
