Boolean union
Fail message
It creates a text dot

I can’t open in Rhino 5, so I copy paste run boolean union without any modification and it works.


#2

If it works in V5 and fails in the WIP, please either post the file here or send it to tech@mcneel.com so the bug can be found and fixed…

In Rhino 6 WIP use Save As and from the “Save as type” selected from the drop down menu “Rhino 5 3D Model” as the file type. Then the file can be opened in Rhino 5 as well as Rhino 6.

As Mitch suggests post the file here or send it to tech@mcneel.com.


#4

So I thought maybe something in the copy paste process into Rhino 5 got it to work, but then I do the same copy paste, no modification in Rhino 6 and it still doesn’t work.bugBoolean.3dm (4.6 MB)

Hi Uebs - I see this works in V5 - thanks. FYI, the text dot(s) in V6, from a failed Boolean, are there to provide a clue as to the likely problem - if you select one of these and look in Properties > Dot page, there is a brief description - in this case ‘Surface intersection error’.

For now, if you replace the revolved, polar, caps on the lower object with a trimmed plane, the BU works. ExtractSrf the top face of the bottom object, delete, and then Cap the object.
