How do I do a “proper” and accurate boolean union of all the parts in the model in this file?
.Boolean question 01.3dm (3.2 MB)
I can easily do a boolean union on all the parts highlighted in green. That is not a problem. When I try to do the same thing with all the parts below that I either get the error message “Boolean union failed”, or I get this error message. I still can’t seem to get away from this dreaded window.
I was able to get everything more or less patched together, but the result is not very elegant. To do this I moved various objects by .01 mm in different horizontal and vertical directions. In the end I have a printable model, because the .01 mm shift here and there is not going to make a difference. However, the result is not very elegant. I wonder if there is a better way to do this.
You can see the overlaps in several areas in this completed model.
