I dont understand the example in the rulebook.

The 3 interceptors fire with one die each, they roll 6, 3, and 2.
The 6 is a hit and one cube is destroyed, but then the text say 3+3=6 a second is destroyed. I assume that one of the 3 in the (3+3=6) is from the die that was just thrown. but where does the other "3" come from?
I would understand if the last die (the one that was a "2") were a 3 instead, and that you could combine these two "3" to a six and in that way destroy the second cube.

But that was not what the example said, can someone plz explain to me

Sry for bad Eng, writing in haste!

You never combine dice. In the example, the Interceptors have +3 computers so add that to their roll. Thus a roll of 3 is a total of 6 (a hit) whereas a roll of 2 is a total of 5 (a miss).
