Boolean Split Failure


#1

Can anyone tell me why the Boolean split fails on this polysurface?

Boolean Split Fail.3dm


#2

Hi,
I don’t know either why but rebuilding the surface it works.


#3

Found the culprit surface from the polysurface, as all the others will split except for this one. But still don’t know why it won’t work.

Split Fail-01.3dm

I don’t know why it doesn’t works, but I found one solution to split your object, in case you still need it.

  1. Make Extractwireframe of the cutting object to use the original curve of it and create a closed curve.

  2. Extrude the closed curve (Solid = yes)

  3. Mesh Boolean split


#5

Sorry, I just tried it again and if you use the command Mesh Boolean Split in your attached file it works well. You don’t need to do my previous suggestion.


#6

Thanks. I will look at that option.

I’ve logged the bug in BooleanSplit. Thanks for the report.
