Boolean Operations on non-solids

Trying to cut a cube with a complex object I get the warning "The use of non-solids for boolean operations may lead to unexpected results." Indeed, the operation fails. What is a non-solid in this case? I assume that any trivial 3D object (cube, cylinder, ...) is a solid, how about results of boolea...

Movement on Group of Objects

Is there a way to apply a movement/rotation on all selected objects? The only way I found was to create a union of the objects and move the union object. If I later want to get individual objects from that union at the location where they were in the union I would have to apply the movement of the u...

Re: Part Slicing for Foam-Padded Case

this script should work and hold all your constraints. Thank you very much for your work, the script looks like it will do exactly what I need. Sadly, the script does not seem to work on my file. Issues I found: Using a comparison on (Point1 - Point2).Length to get a distance seems to fail in case ...

Re: Part Slicing for Foam-Padded Case

Thank you for the feedback, Wouldn't it be better for the foam to be laying the other way, (horizontal), I would certainly be easier. I assume it would be safer for the part to have them vertical, since the part is relatively heavy (8 kg) and with the foam mats standing upright I could have rounded ...

Part Slicing for Foam-Padded Case

I am looking for a special way to create slices of a 3-dimensional object. I want to create cutting schemes for foam mats to create a layered foam padding for a case, similar to what is shown on http://www.mycasebuilder.com . Since my part has many rounded features and is rather heavy, I have decide...
