threaded-part.skp (208.8 KB)
I’m a pretty new sketchup user and I’ve had great success for the last few weeks combining solids and subtracting them from each other up to this point.
Here I’ve created the threaded rod as well as a hexagonal shape for a socket to turn. I placed the hexagonal shape over the threaded rod and attempted to outer-shell them, but it does not produce an outer shell. It combines them but they become a ‘not-a-solid’ and when I go to x-ray view I can see that the hexagonal shape contains geometry within that means it did not outer-shell properly at least as I expected.
Could someone please tell me what I’m doing wrong?
