View Full Version : Just a simple question

06 June 2005, 08:53 PM
This is my problem! I dont know how to cut a simmilar hole in my box...? Yeah, I know it's a noob question but this is just who I am - a noob. It's been like 2 days now since I've learned how to make very simple round holes ;) So if anybody knows, please tell me, and it would be great if I could see a wireframe ;)

Try boolean.

Make simple box, use any number of divisions except 2 and go to town.

Boolean A-B (Box - Cylinder)

Boolean is under 'Compound Objects'

Yes I could do it with Bolean but is there any way to make such thing using just one simple box?

Anyway thx, for your advice!

My first idea would be deleting the face, draw a circle, and make a face again, but that technique doesn't really work if the hole goed around the corner.

Taked from LionTR, when somebody questioned him about cutting the holes for wheels in his famous tutorial :buttrock: so, just make a cylinder with low number of sides, put it where you want your hole, cut on your model around it vertices, delete inner polygons, and you have it :applause: then apply subdivs or meshsmooth. Its by my words, so if is here any bug, i'm sorry :eek:
