Punch a hole in a psolid?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to punch a hole in this psolid I used for a awning roof. The solid was create in elevation view.

For some reason I can not create a psolid hold from that pline.

Unless I'm mistaken, a hole can only be created in a PL solid within the same view in which the PL solid was created.

So to get that turn down need to create the solid in plan view, puch the hole.

Create a solid for the turn down portion & then join them?

Easiest to convert to a Solid, create a 2nd solid to form the hole. Then solid subtraction.

I was able to create the p-solid in plan view & add the hole.

Then creating the turn down p-solid and converted them both to Solids.

Only then could I move them together.

While they were p-solidsI could not use the point to point move as only one or the other would allow a snap selection point.

As Solids I was able to move then together but they will not UNION.

pSolids will only union when in the same plane.  Solids are more flexible.

Wow

Does it bother anyone else that there is NO command line feedback from Chief when you enter a command or hit UNDO.

In AutoCAD when you enter a command it tells you if the command was successful or gives an error.

When you undo it tells you what command was undone.

I feel like I'm in that dark with Chief.

Starting with this, change it to a solid.

 

Create a second p-solid, shaping it as needed to cut the hole. Change it to a solid.

 

Use solid subtraction to make the hole.
