I am doing this tutorial and everything is working great until I get to the 3 dotted side. I get the three sphreres all positioned and hit the ' key and then boolean subtract and it locks up my computer. Any ideas or suggestions? Its not giving me any error message it just makes lots of noise then it says not responding on the very top bar. I have to reboot to get out of it. Could this be due to low disk space? I have 4.36 GB of free space left on drive c and drive d is completely empty. Please help. I feel like I'm making progress and then a wall comes up!!!!

your disk space is more than enough, booleans sometimes goof up if you are trying to split a polyngon with another polygon and the points touch the other polygon.. itīs hard to explain, but the way to fix this is just to move one of your objects away from the other just a bit. Another thing that speeds up booleans is to just select the polygons involved in the operation.
