- So makehole wont cut a hole though multiple objects, which I think is a failing.
However, I find that wire cut will, along with other interesting Boolean type operations.
Shouldn’t these two tools be combined in one? Its only by accident I found that wire cut will make multiple holes, because the name of the tool gives no hint that it might.
Why have two similar tools, one a crippled version of the other?
Further, why cant either of these commands make a hole in a single surface?
I mean, why cant the code just go ok, its a single surface, so let’s use the appropriate bit of code?
As it is, both commands fail in different ways. The MakeHole command just fails to do anything, even though it will let you choose a surface as the input - (shouldn’t it say “not a solid” or something helpful?) whereas the wire cut command cuts the surface, but makes a capped tube of seemingly random length, with the result being joined…??? Say what???
- re the split command - could someone explain exactly what conditions are required for this command to work? I’m thinking splitting both other curves, and objects by a line. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn’t, and I can find no consistent rule as to why.
Since, in the case of it not working, if I copy the line to the other side of the objects (s) , and make a surface, then split with the surface, it almost always works.
So why cant the split code just do that in the background, without me having to manually go through the above?
