2 Spheres - modify lines after boolean operation

Hi,
I made a boolean substraction of two spheres. Then I rounded it with "fillet".
Now I intend to modify the shape of the object through finetuning of the splines. But I cannot scale for example the splines.
IsnĀ“t it possible?

Best regards
Mark

I am affraid that you can't

You can only copy / move-resize this circular curve!

Or Separe the new Boolean Object and then move/ deform resize some parts of it!

You cant really modify the "edges" of a surfaces in that way. You "CAN" work on modifying the surface itself, and also note that when you generate surfaces from curves, they will have a history that updates with the curves. Here is a sample where I seperate out the surface created from the boolean, then do some further work on it.

Hi Mark, no you can't just grab any surface that's part of solid and scale it, you would just need to reconstruct that object with your original sphere scaled down and repeat the same steps you did to build it in the first place.

In the future I do want to make a deeper history function that would allow for the kind of editing that you're asking about but mostly MoI is focused on making things as easy and quick as possible to just do the initial drawing.

There are other CAD programs that are focused on that kind of history, like SolidWorks and Alibre, if you need to have a deep history function you can use one of those other programs to get that kind of functionality rather than MoI - the tradeoff is that they are not as easy to use and don't have the same kind of fast and fluid initial drawing that MoI has.
