    Hello guys, Boolean doesn’t work.

    In Boolean 2 – 1 subtract 2 ok

    But in Boolean 1 – 2 subtract 1 doesn’t work. I don’t know why?

    Please take a look on a attached file.

    Not exactly sure what the issue is, where did you get the splines? A free vectors site?

    I redrew the shapes and then dropped them in the extrude/boolean and then adjusted the position of the smaller shape by decimals points and I got a result.

    You might want to start by redrawing the splines, even using optimize didn’t clean it up enough.

    I imported the splines from Illustrator. Seem like redraw is the only one way to make it work in c4d, so sad 😞.

    Thank you Justin.

    Or redraw it in illustrator if you prefer, either way the spline is a mess and needs to be corrected.

    I just installed R18 version while finding easier method. R18 work like a charm, i don’t know what wrong with S24 & R23. But in R18 i just need drag path to Extruder, then delete inside path. Thank you Justin
