good boolean solution ?
show user profile  Zman
I got this model of a complex screw I got as an SAT file.
I need to make a "square hole" in it at a certain location.

Im trying both Boolean and Pro Boolean on it and getting bad results.
Any quick suggestions ?

This probably won't help, but Blender's real-time booleans are pretty good. Stil Boolean, but seems to work better than those in Max do and doesn't crash constantly. It might be worth a shot.

I make a shape above the surface and use snapping to cut that shape onto the surface. Often quicker than boolean.
