I had two solids overlapping and needed part of one and part of the other, I created a cutting surface and boolean split each one and the resulting solids 1 AND 2 obviously share a common exact same abutting face, YET BOOLEAN UNION FAILS ON THESE TWO FACES.
Maybe abutting faces wont union.
I do a test make two blocks abutting, they union, so not that then !
Make another solid that intersects solid 1 and solid2, using a rectangle profile and sweep2 on solid2, this should bind them together, it also fails.
I run intersect command on solid1 and solid2, they show two lines , so they intersect within tolerance of 0.01mm
Where is the problem ? and can someone also union solid1 to solid2.
I fear booleans !!! surely cut with a common surface should fuse together. I just wish rhino had a sort of ’ I know what you want to do and will fix whatever miniscule reason there is for failure’ …approach.

I wonder if progs such as Autodesk Inventor have boolean failures as much as Rhino. I am told by someone using both that Rhino creates naked edges yet Inventor in their hands has never ever created one. What of Booleans.
