Been having a play with this rather nice library and have a curious
problem with chamfer. If I do

\$fa = 2;
\$fs = 0.5;

chamfer(-4,-2) tube(d=20, h=12, wall=3);

it works as expected- I get a nicely chamfered tube. If I change it to

chamfer(-2,-2,-2) g(turnXY(45), X(60)) box(20);

or

chamfer(-1,-2,-3) X(-40)box(10,x=35,h=15);

in both cases, all I get is a top and bottom slice of the box, nicely
chamfered, and a very thin middle slice. What am I missing?

A baby can be defined as an ego with a noise at one end and a smell at the other.
Your job as parents is to teach them to control all three.
My job as a grandad is to tell you how you are doing it all wrong!

I am not quite sure yet, what it is.

Found the problem Peter- thanks to an email from Hans L
thehans@gmail.com in reply to the topic "Dev build has different
semantics than the 2021.1 release"- I turned off Lazy Union in my
settings and the problem is fixed!

Hello Ken ,
thanks again  for figuring out the cause,
it indeed  did not render properly if you had lazy unions set to "on" (i
have never tried this before)
FIXED the LIB so please update.
it should work with lazy unions now, (please report if it is still a
problem somewhere)
Peter
