chrisb - I'm not quite sure understanding what you mean..
Actually I know what chrisb said, but I can't succeed doing so (I also tried that before answering to you last time).
I retried now and either get an error either get an empty clone.
But ATM, it's better believe chrisb than me.
So I hope too that he can provide a more detailed how-to.
Don't believe in the word of a person if you can have a proof - except if it's Normand who is awfully often right. And I have to say that I almost gave up, it took one and a half hour to find.
The culprit is, that the body has no Tip. I don't know how this could happen, but looking at the names I assume that Stonefire has fiddled so much with this body that I'm finally not surprised.
If I set the tip to the loft it works. Here are the steps:
- Delete Cut and Clone, and I all the other rubbish too: unneded sketches, rest of some origin, (and the Part container, making the model smaller).
- Set Tip
- create Clone of Body
- scale it
- Move it slightly towards -Z to avoid coplanarity issues
- Select Body and the Clone and perform a boolean cut.
The result is the attached file - which has shrunk to 1/4 of the size you uploaded.
