When I open you first model, the crater component has Glue To Any set, but Cut Opening is not checked. If I make the cut opening setting, delete the existing instance and pull a new instance from the components window, it cuts the plane exactly as required.
There are some subtle details (some might call them flaws) in how these so-called behaviors work. Glue to must be set to something other than “none” and the Cut Opening box must be checked in the Component Edit panel before an instance of the component is placed. Editing these behavior properties will not retroactively change existing instances. Copying an existing instance that is glued and cuts an opening will create another instance that also does, but copying an existing instance that has been unglued (or wasn’t glued in the first place) will not activate glue to or cut opening on the new instance.
