I’m back again, with another of my arc/curves question (yeah, somehow working with straights and flats is more intuitively clear). So, here’s what I need to do this time. Attached is a components through which I would like to drill a hole, from one side to the other. The axis and the size of the hole are represented by the circle I placed.
What I tried so far is to pull the circle through the component, so it forms a cylinder and then intersect it with the model.
The trouble is that the intersection comes out pretty bad, some of the faces on SIDE A, do not for good edges with the “cylinder” and when I try to delete outer part of the cylinder, either whole cylinder is removed (so that I see into the component) or the faces of side A are deleter (i.e. the whole faces, not just what’s inside the tube… which I was thinking will then form the “hole”.
Long story short, how do you properly "drill"a hole through the component? Eventually I will need the component with the hole to be solid, so the hole should make good edges with the component, right?
