I'm starting constructing a 'snowflake', and in the initial stages of modeling Drill has failed me, I know not why.

Mysterious mostly because it's a VERY simple object at this stage.


Try Drilling layer 2 into layer 1--- why isn't this working? Both TUNNEL and STENCIL failed.

Note: I'm not looking for a work-around, I want to know why this isn't working.

Been dealing with this doing logos for years. Simply put, LW does not see this as a "simple object" when it comes to computing the Drill functions.
My suggestion to you is to use the Knife tool to divide the complex shape into multiple simpler shapes.

Huh? Really? It also failed when the big part was half as complicated, before I mirror'd it.

Disappointing. (It did work as you say when I subdivided the big poly.)
