I’m currently working on an ouroburos, and I’m so close to finishing. My only problem is that I can’t seem to union the mouth and tail together.
The head was an stl turned mesh I simplified and converted to NURBS, whereas the tail originated in Rhino. I don’t think you can see it, but the bottom of the body is cut off so it has a flat belly.
Boolean Union (and all Booleans) refuses to work. I’ve tried extruding the flat belly to different lengths, to no avail. When booleaning fails me, usually I just roll up my sleeves and do some trimming and joining. But the trimming isn’t working either. I can get an object intersection curve, but that’s not trimming the tail or head either. I even tried converting everything to mesh and running a mesh-boolean union, but that’s not working either. I’d like to avoid having to remake the head from scratch, can anyone think of any other work-arounds?
I should mention that this is tiny, the body is about 2.5mm wide. Would scaling it up help? I must admit, I haven’t fully grasped an understanding of tolerances…right now I’m at .001… would it help if I increased or decreased that value?
Thanks in Advance,
