Can some kind soul help me with this please?
I am trying to prepare some components for the 3DW. It’s a collection of rooflights.
I started by creating a basic model of one rooflight in the range. I made the insertion point very particular so that it could be used in cross sectional detailing. that requires the rooflight to be set at a specific depth in relation to the tops of tile battens.
I then made the rest of the collection by adjusting sizes. At this stage, I only had one level of nesting.
It then occurred to me that people might want components to glue to a sloped surface and cut a hole. I wasn’t sure how to do that without increasing the nesting depth. So I grouped all the sub-components into a single one and then applied the cutting and glueing functions. But I wasn’t sure I needed to create the extra nest level.
The attached shows the result. The rooflight embedded in the roof is the one that I added the cutting and glueing functions to, but it doesn’t seem to have made any difference. The other is unamended. Outliner shows the difference in nesting levels.
So what I want to know is:
Did I need to create the extra nesting level?
What did I do wrong with the cutting and glueing?
Anything else I should do to make these components suitable for the 3DW?
