Render with no outside surface

Don't know how to explain this other than show you the outcome.  It seems as if when I subtract the two slots, the render does not create the outside surface.  Can anybody explain what could be happening here.  Using TC 16 Deluxe and starting to get frustrated with it and may upgrade to Pro.

Please ignore the fact that there is a whole bunch of other stuff going on in model space.  This was one of the first drawings I created while learning TC.  Hopefully they don't have an effect on the drawing.  If you delete all of them, except 0, but delete the contents on 0, it doesn't seem to change anything.

Your objects are surfaces; not solids. Generally, I would discourage the use of the thickness parameter.

I've tried doing the subtraction as both objects as TC surfaces, polylines, simple extrudes, extrudes, all sorts of stuff.  And everytime it doesn't do it correctly.  I've noticed it only messes up on the left slot (the one closer to the angled side).  The slot on the right subtracts just fine.  Remember that this is TC Deluxe.

I can't go further; I don't have Deluxe. Perhaps someone else will jump in.

I think your drawing is haunted. I had the same problem as you, but then I copied everything and pasted into an empty new drawing -- and the subtract operation worked fine.

OK.  Thanks.  I've been able to work around this problem a couple of times.  What I ended up doing was slicing the object, copying the right side back to the left side and then unioned them together.  I let you know when I run into a similar case because I know I will.
