Need help. Make boolean mesh button does not work


#1

I never used live boolean before. So I never noticed this issue. But no matter how, I cant make boolean mesh.
Live boolean is active and works. But pressing make boolean mesh des nothing. Even in projects that were included like this

bolt.

Usually there always someone that had same problems that I did and fixed it.
So I always found solutions.
But when it comes to this. I feel like I am the only one that has this issue.

Like literally nothing no new tools or subtools.
No messages. Nothing.
I reinstalled software and still problem is there.
I watched several tutorials. I did everything as should. But I can not pass the part where you press make boolean mesh.
I hope I am just an idiot that didnt click something important in preferences.
And I dont have to reinstall Windows or something. (

usually its an problem with mesh integrity
that means one of the meshes has some vertecies that aren’t one mesh with the rest
i fix it by select box an part of the mesh with ctrl+shift drab an square
then press ztrl+shift+a to grow selection and after tht draw an box outside of mesh like you don for first selection
this will hide the mesh if there is an part of the mesh that is prroblematik if mesh is fine it will not be hidden
next ctrl +shift drag box outside of mesh to show the mesh again for mesh that has problems (hidden after select drag outside of mesh)
use delete hidden to fix the mesh
also after that its ok to go tool/geometry/meshintegrity and hit Fix mesh
now try to do the boolean operation with button
