The attached file shows an object I am trying to create.
When I get to the Boolean Difference to subtract one solid from another I do not achieve my desired result. Any suggestions why. My process is as follows:
Design is broken down into the following elements.
- Frame Profile
- Crenels segments
Creat frame profile with polylines and curves.
Sweep 1 Rail to create Frame solid.
Create geometry of crenel segment using two circles and two lines.
Join curves into a closed polyline.
Make Planar surface
Polar array surface.
Extrude surface ‘straight’
Boolean Difference - ‘extruded surface and ‘Frame Solid’
I am trying to subtract the Crenel solid from the frame to product the effect shown in the jpeg - I had success once and tried to repeat the process but without success. Any ideas where I am making a mistake?
