Boolean Problem

Hi Michael,

I tried to Boolean difference this solid with the two curves without success, two surfaces are created instead, but when I separate and join to a solid again everything behaves as it should.

File attached.

Hi Danny,

Deleting the top surface and clicking on "Planar" solves the problem.

I analised the shape in Rhino and i noticed a strange isocurve,which
i show in the attached image.

Hi Danny, thanks for reporting this bug.

The problem seems to be that the surface normals of that solid are inverted from the way they are supposed to be, that's why it trims away the wrong part of the planes that are extruded from those cutting lines.

When you do a separate and join, the orientation gets recalculated to be correct, so that's why it works properly after that.


Probably the actual bug was unfortunately in some previous step before this point that did not compute the proper orientation...
