My frustration level is now at MAX.
All I want to do, is cut a model into two pieces, with WIRECUT.
The other day, I attempted to perform an illegal operation, which was to try to cut a meshed object. I then used the MeshtoNURB command to convert it, so I could cut it. I then went back to the original file, made copies of it again, and did the operation again on a copy, just like I did the first time. When I selected it, only the top half selected. The top half was where I had put the cut line in the first place. (but it wasn’t cut) I NEVER used the original file to work with….I’ve always used and worked with a copy of it.
I could never delete the bottom half, which I do not want to keep. So I tried WIRECUT again on the next copy. It went through a bunch of stuff, but it still wasn’t cut. I tried to copy it, and then the program hung up, with a “Not responding” message. After trying this several more times, I had to WARM-BOOT the machine. On a successive try, I had to COLD-BOOT the machine.
I have contacted the maker of the model, to see what he can do about it. RhinoV5 does not appear to be able to do the wirecut. I have been screwing around with this all day, and accomplished exactly NOTHING……
