Having trouble with AI imported paths in 3DS Max...
show user profile  Sakowsky
Hey everyone, new here and this is my first post.

I wanted to see if anyone could assist me in some way in figuring out this problem. So far I tried a lot of different youtube tutorial videos and simply haven't been able to figure things out pertaining to this situation and I know you guys are likely far more familiar with this then I am since what I feel I'm having is a really simple 3ds max problem suitable for amateurs!

Regardless I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I could cut a shape out of my Lumps font, trying to get the hole in the letter P and I tried boolean with very little success (causing far to many jagged intersections in the polygons and didn't even make the gap properly). I didn't think this would be so complicated!

Here's my situation:

Any help would be much appreciated!

attach the inside shape of the P and extrude instead of bevel.

I tried that and it still capped the hole:

I tried clicking the uncap on both of the faces but it just uncapped the entire font for me when I did that.

hmm, should work if the splines are part of the same object I think. Check that the inner spline is a complete loop with no breaks in it.

The circle inside the 'p' either is overlapping itself somewhere or is broken, meaning you need to find and weld the break.

Just refine-connect a few lines in to link the inside and outside. Right now it's confused as to what you want from it.
