For the record, I am using Sketchup Pro 2018.
This serves to report on strange behaviors in the Sketchup native Solid Subtract tool. I am aware that others have reported on issues before, but I could only find reports related to pre-Sketchup2018. Maybe the native Solid Tools have noe been updated for some years?
Again, for the record, both my original solids passes SolidInspector2 with “Everything is shiny”.
From left to right:
- The two original solid groups shown independently
- The two original solid groups, the smaller moved into position ready for subtraction from the larger
- Result after having used Sketchup native Solid Subtract tool
- Result after having used Eneroth Solid Subtract tool
The result from Sketchup native tool has a lot of holes, all of them FAR away from the subtraction part of the volume. How can this occur?
The result from Eneroth Solid Subtract tool is absolutely fine. Just perfect!
Unfortunately, in my experience the native Solid Subtract tool is unusable for anything apart from very simple structures. Trimble developers, feel free to debug!
My thanks to Eneroth for a very robust implementation of her tool.
By the way, this is my first testrun of the object, fresh from the 3D-printer.
And to everyone: Happy new year!!
