I use an off the shelf plastic box for one of my electronic projects. Rather than having to cut holes in the box with a dremel, I decided to download the 3d model, add the holes in SU, and 3d print it.
One of the cut-outs I need is along an edge of the box. The edge is rounded, and I haven’t been able to cut out through that edge and keep what SU thinks is a valid solid.
I tried using a solid rectangular object and subtracting it from the box solid, but I’m left with surface borders I can’t figure out how to fix. I left the rectangular box in the model in case using a Solid Tools function will actually work.
I’ve also tried drawing lines on the rounded edge to try and create a face that I could push back to open up the corner. While tedious, I can do that on the outside of the corner. But I haven’t been able to do it on the inside of corner.
Surely there’s an easy way to do this?
