I have attached a model of a gas forge I am planning to make. I’ve made this by creating 2 brick components and them basically copying them and using a combination of move/rotate to position them
into the form you see in the uploaded model.
The holes and squares are not meant to be part of the model. What I wanted to do was be able to cut an opening like what is shown on the top of the forge. I have tried to select the entire bricked structure and draw the circle then use push/pull to cut through but it wont work because each brick is a component and my circle is crossing multiple components.
I then tried to make the entire structure a group and then draw my circle and use push pull to attempt to cut the opening, still no luck.
Then I played around using intersect faces with model and was able to get the circle shape to protrude through the thickness of multiple bricks as shown in the attached model.
I am still not able to cut an opening. I am missing something quite simple but have not been able to figure it out. must be a better workflow or modeling practice that would avoid this issue.
Appreciate any insights you may have.
