Cutting round

Tutorial how to cut hole or whatever u want.

First u need a mesh which needs a hole. I created box and cylinder.

Then place cylinder where u want. Click Create button (first red box) and select Compound Objects.

Select Boolean from Compound Objects, select the box, and then click on Pick Operand B...

..and then click on cylinder.

O.K. Now you got a HOLE :lol but sometimes you aren't able to cut round like there, because meshes fu*ks up, so here is another way. You see that in previous photo i was selecting Substraction A-B, if it didn't work for you click on Cut. Then you'll get only edges of round, so you can extrude it or do whatever you want.

Good luck :)

Edited it a bit to help clear up possible confusion. You need to select "operand A" first, before clicking "pick operand B", otherwise it won't work. Operand A is the object you want the hole in, and Operand B is the object that you want boolean to use to make the hole.- JAG Tags: No tags

Not bad, Fox. There's much more you can do with boolean, but this give you an idea of what it can do. I recommend playing around with it and try different settings for it, you'll figure out much more ways you can use boolean.
