For the last week or so I have been designing up a box for some ham

radio friends of mine. All was going well until today, when I have done

/*something*/ that I cannot for the life of me find!

In the code below, on lines 70, 82, and 99 (the only lines with a #) are

the problem cut-outs.

I also commented out the two 'use' statements and put the modules

in-line for the purposes of this email.

F5 shows clearly that the objects are through the wall just fine- and

prior to my error, they cut holes through as designed.

But now when I F6, they still cut out on the inside of the wall, but

don't show on the outside of the wall.

This has me completely bamboozled- I'd be mighty grateful if somebody

could spot my mistake!

Hi Ken,

Ran you file on version 2024.02.25. I think you're referring to 2 rounded rectangular and 4 circular holes that would be on the left edge of the object as you face the right-side-up text. The work fine for me with #, without #, and when I render. I tried using both manifold and cgal for rendering and both were fine.

Any chance the "something" you did wasn't in this file itself?

regards,

Lenore

Yeah, seems to work fine for me in both 2021.01 and 2024.03.05 (both

Manifold and CGAL).

Thanks Jordan & Lenore- based on your comments, I updated to 2024-03-18

and the problem has gone away. I was using a late 2023 snapshot.

Looking back at it after a night's sleep, I'm guessing maybe a reboot

might have fixed it- but no matter, whatever it was, it drove me nuts

for the better part of a day, and now it's gone!

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!
