situation: I have been using Rhino3 for years, but it drives me mad
sometimes with solids problems. I’ll describe one here:
start with 2 valid closed solids. They need to join, but one
tube-like solid must leave a hole in the union. . I start with an
intersect, but I get: “Objects do not intersect. Nothing done.”
That’s crap I can plainly see they DO intersect. So I ask for a
curves from objects>intersection. I get nine intersections and
they look like closed curves to me. So I explode the lot, then have
the surfaces cut each other and join the remainder to a solid. As
expected I get a bunch of unjoined edges as rhino does not cut
exactly. When I try to merge them Rhino says “This edge is already
merged.”. When I attempt to Join 2 naked edges, Rhino returns: “
Unable to find overlapping intervals.” Result I wasted lots of
time and no idea where to go next. Sigh.
my question to the forum: are these problems solved with Rhino5? Or
should I go look elsewhere?
