thanks for replies, .
I have found a pipe that needs to be cut off and the hole that is made capped off, all on the mesh as its too thin to print. Is there a command to nibble away at the mesh to do so ?
I have managed to project a line around it, now try a meshtrim and cap it.
the command says select the cutting object, i select the faceted circle around the mesh pipe, it then says select the mesh to be trimmed, I do so, and nothing happens.
try again, nothing happens.
The circle is on the mesh as its a projection to its surface, I have apparent intersections turned off.
I try again on my sphere mockup, again nothing happens, even on ortho, nothing happens.
see image below for red line of where rod needs removing. How does one chop that pipe off the sphere mesh in perspective view with mesh tools ?
smoothing out a surface feature on a mesh.
I cant offer up the mesh, it needs an NDA as it is for any dealings. I would be lynched if I was to post it here or anywhere .
Model figures have cables molded to their torsos, aircraft cockpits (plastic kits) have pipes molded to their surfaces, no undercut. Suits the removal from metal molds process.
see my mockup.
How does one smooth down the raised form around the sphere ? or the pinked areas in my image ?
a crop of the area concerned.
Hope that helps.
In an experiment and I see the pipe loses its end when BooleanUnion is used, so that takes care of my question on tidying up the insides., GOOD.
