Boolean subtract not working

Postby joaopcrodrigues » Mon Dec 10, 2018 4:19 pm

Hello,

(The attachment was too big 10mb so I only attached a screenshot with a montage)

I am trying to work on a solid made from an imported mesh stl file.
Lets call A the main imported body and B the solid cube.

I was able to get the intersection and the section between A and B.
I was able to remove (Boolean difference) A from B.
I was NOT able to remove (Boolean difference) B from A. Everything diapers.

So, I can extract the main body from a solid (like a mold), I can get a part of the main body (like a chunk), the fusion gives me something weird, but I CANNOT get the same part out of the main body.

Could anyone explain please?

Boolean operations

Postby joaopcrodrigues » Tue Dec 11, 2018 11:47 am

Hello

Can anyone help me with some Boolean operations with the file attached.
Before, anything, the mesh must be converted to solid, it wasn't done because the file was too big and I couldn't post it.

I want to be able to get:
1- The solid intersection between the fuselage and the cube.
2- The solid difference between the fuselage and the cube.
3- The solid difference between the cube and the fuselage.

Please explain, I've been trying for days.

After days of struggling.... fixed it.

The stl had to be repaired using another software (meshlab) before importing. After thins and transforming it to a solid, all bollean worked.

Cheers.
