Creating slots in surfaces for lasercut waffle structure

Hi all!

I’ve been struggling with this file for a few days now - I am trying to create slots/holes in my horizontal components to prepare this form to be lasercut. I have tried the Boolean tools which don’t seem to be working… and ideas on how I could work through this problem?

Hi Elise,
If you give your horizontal components some thickness, the Boolean operation should work. Alternatively, you can manually find the intersection curves between the objects and use these to split/trim the horizontal surfaces.

Thanks! I managed to get it to work - Boolean operation wasn’t working but splitting did!
