cove corners - polyline subtraction

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a podium with nice cove indentations at the corners -- like the first image below, only rounded.  I thought I could do this using polyline subtraction, as shown in the second image (the pink is what I want to be subtracted).  But there doesn't seem to be a way to accomplish this with the cylinder and dome shapes from the library.  Any other suggestions for how to accomplish this?

I bet if you converted all poly solids into  CONVERT TO SOLID,  I think it will work,

That's the problem -- it won't let me do that.  I used the Shapes library cylinder and dome shapes.

 

Do you know how to create rounded 3D shapes from polylines?

Don't use those.  Use the actual cylinder and sphere tools...
