Trying to combine two models

Postby pmazz850 » Sun Aug 26, 2018 1:38 pm

Hi all,
I have a 3d model i'm trying to combine with another, but i can't get it to work correctly. The material is 1.5 thick, the 3d model has a thickness of 1, so model is at the top of the material, with a .5 base. Then i create a simple 3d model of a square i want attached under it. The square section i only want to be 1 inch thick.. No matter how i try to combine them, the model height i set for the square part, affects the height of the first 3d model. I must be missing something. How can i add the second part without changing the other?

Thanks

Well i just figured it out. I had to go into each model properties after creating the second model, and adjust the height. Now i need to figure out how to remove the overlapping piece of the model..

Set the components property to "Merge",,,That will get rid of the over lap...but you'll need to adjust the component model height as needed.

Thank you Michael. I got it sorted out. Is there an easy way to not have the lower part of the model 3d carved? I will have it the correct height for that material before hand. But the upper part will have the extra material for the model height. I have tried two separate boundry vectors, but it still goes past this and carves the lower part. I tried to upload a pic for you to see, but it's too large to upload.

Got that figured out now. I had to check a different box on the tool tab. All good now.
