I have a little issue for my solids. After I Boolean my letters into my solids, the ‘‘M’’ letters get transparent although the shape is capped and water tight. I’m not quite sure if I’m missing something or it’s just an error to ignore.
Hello John, many thanks for your reply, I guess fonts and the micro-loops in them are causing the problem somehow, so what I did was changing the font. But since I like my original fonts, I’ll try applying your way of fixing it, too.
you can use fonts, but I’d recommend start by placing them as curves, then exploding and inspecting the curves. Rebuild curves as necessary and then join and extrude.
Fonts are notorious for causing bad objects as they were never intended to be used as clean 3d modeling objects. Typically speaking, you can clean them up in a few min and be good to go- Look for stacked vertices in the corners and curves with tons and tons of points…
I guess I’ve seen doing this in one of your videos. Probably it was for the the table lamp. If my guess is right then this would be the right solution. Hope someday the awesome Rhino team is going to make these alphabets friendlier.
