Thickness tool not removing faces

Postby JussyAD » Sat May 15, 2021 10:58 am

good day all

been trying top remove some front faces to give this shape thickness but to no avail. All I get is an error.
Also, if I try to remove the top, just out of interest, either it doesn't work or it messes up the geometry with some new triangular overlapping face.

if anyone knows what's cooking here please let me know..?

The Mirrored part must have the refined option changed from False to True and then Thickness works.
