Hi,

 

I'm trying to notch a curved pipe with another pipe and its giving me many problems because I can't select it. What can I do to work it out?

 

Thank you.

1. Copy Object as Surface cutting object face and Split part or Sculpt

(Attach the two parts and iam if you can't figure it out - don't need the entire assembly).

 

2. Derived Component combine.

I couldnt do as you said in the first part, because each pipe is one separate body and you can't edit them. I tried combining them then doing it aswell, but I can't for the same reason.

Mr Mather, I kept on trying because I don't agree on the easy way out, and I managed to trim it or split it, but how do I delete the unwanted parts of the tube?

 

Thank you for your guidance.

The Split command has options to Split AND delete.

First of all thanks for the reply, any help is appreciated

 

I tried doing that, but it seems that still the pipe won't really trim. the construction lines are perfect and everything, but when i open the pipe alone, it is still as it was before.
