Hi Newbie ColinH here again.
I am designing a stool made out of rings of wood held together with dowels. I need to subtract the dowels from the rings.
At first subtract solid was working fine leaving the required hole, but for some reason it has stopped leaving the hole and just removes the dowel. I don't understand what has changed, it does not seem to be a screen redraw problem as i have rebooted and come back to the file on another day also.
Also quite often it is not the dowel selected that makes the hole but an adjacent one..weird
Any ideas, would love some guidance.
It gets weirder. If i subtract the dowel from the ring it fails as above. If i subtract the ring from the dowel the ring disappears as it should, if i then undo that and re-apply the remove to the dowel it then works. Why? i do not wish to have to do this to the 100 dowels in the job.
