My current problem has to do with 3D subtraction failing. The attached HereIsAnotherOne.tcw
is the current problem child. I've already tried all of the old tricks, i.e., cutting and pasting the offending parts to new file, etc., without success. I even disassembled the polyline to it's individual components and tried three separate extrusions, also without success. I examined all of the options or settings or properties of both the sweep extrusion and door panel and saw nothing amiss.
Every attempt to 3D subtract the sweep extrusion from the door panel resulted in the following error messages:
- Operation unsuccessful
- The resultant ACIS Solid is degenerated. The boolean operation is discarded
I would appreciate it very much if someone can tell me:
- Why the subtraction keeps failing, and
- What I can do to make it work.
After much experimentation with sweeping extrusions, I believe I have that problem solved. For those who followed the Works in one file but not the other
thread, the problem seems to has something to do with the algorithm that TurboCAD uses to define the sweep path. Apparently TurboCAD is confused by contiguous and/or adjacent lines that belong to the same layer. The attached file Extrusion-SECRETS.TCW
was my experimentation file.
