Error when placing hole in polyline solid

Recommended Posts

- I placed a polyline solid.

 

- I then placed another polyline solid and

tried to make it a hole in said polyline solid. 

 

- I get an error "no polyline of the same type found to contain this hole etc..."

 

I know I've done this a million times what am I doing wrong?

 

Please help?

 

....again

 

:(

Are you sure the outer one is a p-solid? What does look like in a 3D view?

The outer one is definitely a p-solid. 

It looks like a giant slab of concrete.

So does a slab and a solid (not a p-solid).

 

What layer is it on?

 

What happens if you just redraw it?

Are they both drawn in the same view?   Maybe try drawing item 2 as a poly line and converting to p-solid.

Or convert both items to solids and subtract.

My bet is on this issue ^^^^  it makes no logical sense to me why the view it was created in is so important, but Chief operates this way with psolids.

How are you trying to convert the second polysolid to a hole?

With the Create Hole tool on the Edit toolbar, or the Hole In Polyline Solid the PL solid dbx?

 

Maybe post a plan?

I created the first p-solid in plan view by drawing a rectangle on the floor and giving it a height of 200 inches.

 

I then took a wall elevation view of that p-solid. 

 

Next I drew another p-solid in the wall elevation view on the surface of the first p-solid. 

 

Then when I attempted to convert the second p-solid to a hole I got that error message. 

 

Are we not allowed to draw a hold in a different plane from which the first p-solid was drawn?

 

That seems ridiculous. I'm sure I've done this many times before...

 

(sorry for responding late. I posted this question just before going to bed last night)

I didn't open your plan, but I know that both psolids have to be drawn in the same plane.

Ok, I guess I thought I had done this in the past - I guess not. 

 

However, I wish the error message would perhaps say "hey dummy draw the 2nd p-solid in the same plane as the first one", instead of the ambiguous and lead to nowhere error message that's in place. 

 

I will chalk that up to user error regardless. 

 

Thanks Glen.
