Totally LOST II - 3D Subtract
Read 307 times

Gents, I start understand TC is not for me?

After getting help with subject "Totally lost in imprint" I run direct to the next problem.

Now I can't 3D subtract... Any ideas?

Best regards

Your profile is not correct as it has 3 lines on top of each other and needs to be closed so subtract will work.  ;)

See attached - I moved the node points using the Edit tool to show you the overlapping. If you right click when using the edit tool it tell us if a profile is closed as a continuous joined Polyline as the "Close" text is greyed out if the profile is closed. Yes you could just close it as is but we cannot of lines on top of each other like you have created as it will still refuse to subtract

Darrel,

Thanks for your help! You saved my day, I had no clue for what going on and have no idea how I put extra lines out.

But I struggle pretty much with the arc and direction, I change direction and get circle.
However It's properly training.

Again, thanks!

When drawing/tracing over something, like that 3D polyline, it can be helpful to draw with a different color. This way you know when you're back at the beginning.

Another helpful item, use the "Raytrace Full" Rendering Mode, not "Full". It will render faster in Raytrace Full, as it uses all your available threads/cores (see Options/Desktop).

You can change to a different color before drawing, or when finished drawing, use "F7" or "Ctrl+F7" to select the previous drawn object(s), then change the color.

A better option would be to use a Template that has "Presets" set up ahead of time. Pick the preset before drawing.
