Make boolean operations between solids and voids work with imported families

Make boolean operations between solids and voids work with imported families

The following would be a nice way to "drill holes" into a solid (or to use subtractive operations as modelling strategy in general):

 

  - model a void family to be used, for example, as hole

  - import the void family into another family and use it with the "Cut" operation to "drill holes" (or do something similar)

 

For the time being the following strategy works:

 

  - create a "hole" profile

  - import it into a family with some solid

  - use the void sweep tool and the profile to create a hole in the solid

 

It is also possible to join imported solids

 

so it would be only logical if boolean operations would work between solids and imported voids as well...
