Unable to perform boolean merge of a spiral and a text

Hi guys,

I have two meshes (a) spiral, and (b) text as in the below screenshot.


I took following steps to achieve this

  • create a spiral, create a text
  • use ‘curve’ modifier to wrap text around spiral. Then convert the text to a mesh
  • convert the spiral to mesh

Now when I use either of the mesh object to perform a Boolean Merge “Union” operation, I get the error saying “Can not apply modifier”. I need a single mesh containing both the objects. What could be going wrong here?

For support questions please ALWAYS supply a demo blend file.

Please also use the support forums. Moved from Blender Discussion to Support / Modelling forum

By default, phrase “Text”, beveled, extruded and converted to mesh contains around 700 double vertices. Booleans are known refusing to work in “dirty” environments.
Check your mesh.
