View Full Version : Boolean Won't Subtract

I've been boolean subtractin' for years. I know that I know how to do it, but for some reason it is not working for me today. Attached is the object file. Both objects are complete solids and there are no complicated angles or polygons. What could possibly be wrong? (And don't say it's 'cause I'm on a Mac. G4 Dual 1Ghz, OS X.3, LW7.5c, 1.25GB RAM)

The problem is that the object in layer 1 has two layers of polys. Get rid of one set(run a 'Unify Polygons'(Shift + i)) and it'll work just fine.

It works!
Thanks for being the observant one, Dave. Sometimes I just don't pay attention to what I'm doing, I guess. Sheesh!
Much appreciation for troubleshooting and finding the solution for me. Thanks again.
