My Second post, another issue!
I recently upgraded from 2.61 to 2.62 after my previous version started to give me grief
In 2.61 I learned about the Boolean Modifier, and Intersect, Union and Difference.
If I remember correctly:
Intersect is similar to joining objects, meaning that their meshes stay the same
Union removes any “inner” meshes between objects
and Difference is used to make an indentation of another object.
I only got to use Difference in 2.61, then I downloaded 2.62 and these operations seem whacked out now.
I made a ring band, and a ring top and I wanted to stick them together, removing the meshes between them, so I picked Union, and it muddled up, so I chose Difference, which did what I thought Union would…
Now I am trying to “engrave” text onto a different ring band, and I am trying it with Difference, just as I did the first time when it worked in 2.61, and it just cuts holes in the ring band mesh, and leaves the sidewalls of the text sticking up out, but you can see straight through into the inside of the ring band mesh. What am I not doing? or is there something wrong with my meshes?
I will keep struggling with it in any case, and if I have any major breakthroughs I will reply or edit this post
Thank you so much for reading!
