3d Studio ... Trying to use the boolean subtraction
Posted on 2006-06-27
I'm using 3D Studio
I imported an AI file and extruded it but letters which should have holes like a, d, o didn't have holes.
So for these letters I created new splines and traced the imported letter. I traced the outside of the letter and the inside of the hole.
Next, I extruded the inside of the letter, and extruded the outside of the letter. The extrude for the inside which is what I want to cut out has a larger extrude.
Anywho... When I select the letter, then compound objects > boolean subtraction and select the middle of the letter to cut it out it doesnt work. I'm doing A - B subtraction. The B dissapears like you would expect but the main letter still doesn't have a hole in it and looks as it always did.
Help would be greatly appreciated.
