i created this in subd, export as step, import into Alibre and when i try to do a boolean subtract, it fails. then when i inspect the part i get this error

i also tried converting to a nurbs, export and still same result, boolean subtract fails.
The imperfections are caused by some extra control points. I deleted them and changed the topology.

thanks, i tried deleting points, guess never the right ones,
Stitch can be useful in this case too to merge two vertices…
thanks, i had better luck with the deleting the points. i tried the stitch on a couple of points and imported into Alibre, no errors but still would not boolean subtract. the other works great for me. i didn’t spend a lot of time on the stitch.
