Putting a hole through a shape created with follow me tool

Trying to put a hole through the center of a wheel I created with the follow-me tool. So far either it goes all the way through and sticks out, or it doesn’t go through enough. I made the initla object with follow me and I think I filled in the base correctly. What should I do to fix it to put a hole through the middle?

The simple way would be to draw a circle and then double click on it to push it out.
If that’s not an option then solid tools would do it, you’d make a cylinder and ‘subtract’ it from your wheel using solid tools.

In this case select all →right click and select ’ Intersect Faces with Selection’ in the context menu. Next delete unwanted geometry in the middle.

Use the edge to show pushpull where to finish. And reverse all your faces, it is insideout.

I’m curious why you didn’t draw the cross section profile with the hole already indicated. It would be formed as part of the Follow Me operation.


I was playing with the profile and getting it on the circle correctly. After you suggested it I tried and it worked great.
