Why boolearn difference fails?

I have the big rounded shape that I wish to cut on sides with a boolean difference. But it fails.
Here is my file: booleandifferencefail.3dm (370.8 KB)

Your extruded oval exists of 2 objects.
see 2nd image.

Extract both surfaces and MergeSrf them. Them join all together again and try again :slight_smile:
I just see that the top part also exists of 2 parts… Merge these first and then with the lower one.
While MergeSrf them put smooth = no

The problem is that you try to booleandifference an object that crosses 2 surfaces.
