3D Subtract Issue
Read 853 times

Hi Everyone,

I have an issue that I can't seem to work out?
I made a very quick object using the revolve tool & then used rail sweep with a square profile 2mm x 2mm to be able to 3D Subtract the rail sweep from the object leaving a small V Notch groove on the outer surface.
When I 3D Subtract it removes a whole section of the object & not just the V Notch as required.
I tried changing the object & the rail sweep profile to Solids & also to Surfaces to see if it would work, but not so.

Not really sure what to do next?
I have attached a couple of screenshots to show the issue.

Cheers
David

Willeng,

Can you post the tcw file before the subtraction and I'll take a look at it tomorrow? Getting ready to leave for the day now.

Hi Travis,
Thanks for the reply!

I have actually just found the issue & it's not a TC issue but more of a stupid user mistake, there was a minute section of the Polyline not joined correctly & after Zooming to the max I found it & now everything is perfect!
I was revolving a damn hollow object-DUH!

Thanks Again

Cheers
David

I thought it was something like that but didn't want to assume  ;)
