I am wondering if there is a way to use a part of one piece located in an assembly to cutout a portion of another piece located in an assembly when both pieces occupy the same space?
The situation I'm in is that I've got an L bracket (piece 1) resting on top of a piece representing a concrete block (piece 2). The L bracket has metal studs attached that protrude into the concrete. Idealy I'd like the mass of concrete located in the same space as the studs removed so that when I generate cross sections everything adds up.
Any help is much appreciated,
Solved! Go to Solution.
Edit the part to be cut within the context of the assembly.
Right click and Copy Object as surface the faces of the second part into the first part.
Use Split part or Sculpt to cut the first part.
Attach your assembly here if you can't figure it out.
Thanks for the help. I gave it a shot but was unable to solve the problem.
I was able to copy and create a surface in parts bracket 13625L and bracket1352 redo:1.
Hoever I could not manage to get these surfaces to interact or move to Grating Oil Water Sump v2:1 (the part that I'm trying to cut). I've attached the assembly. hopefully it helps solve the problem.
