How to make Boolean Union in this rim model?

(Alex) #1

Hi dear friends,
I’ve tried to make Camaro rim. I made the outer and inner part separately and in order to continue the modeling process, I have to make them both Boolean Union but it fails. Please guide me.

Hi Alex - the spoke section has some naked edges - use ShowEdges > Naked edges to see this. If you fix that it should work OK. It looks like maybe you built the spoke surfaces individually rather than making them once and arraying copies. At any rate, I removed all the surfaces at the naked edges, and copied some from a better spoke - that should work now.
(btw, generally there is no reason to send the 3dmbak file with your posted file)

Can I ask you how you corrected those naked edges? Thanks

Hi Alex - I didn’t - I threw them away and copied surfaces from a better spoke around to that location.
