I’m new to Rhino and Grasshopper, and I’m looking for a way to “extrude cut” using Grasshopper’s scripting tools, similar to how you might extrude cut in Solidworks. Essentially, I’m looking to have a complex pipe network move through a box, as shown below.
I’ve tried making meshes out of the box surface and the pipe surfaces below, and then use MeshBooleanDifference to remove the pipe from the box. The result seems to be a simple mesh of a box, as if nothing was cut out.
Is there a better way to approach this? Is there an “extrude cut” command that I haven’t found? Any help on the topic is greatly appreciated!
