Not Sure why the Boolean Is doing this


(Eric) #1

I can’t seem to find a rhyme or reason as to what’s making it jump/offset once boolean is applied.

TIA!

Is that just a line, or a rectangle? Boolean doesn’t work with just lines - it has to be closed shapes. Though I see what you mean about the jump - I haven’t seen that before. If you send the source file to developer at lightburnsoftware dot com I can have a look.

Yes it’s a dxf I imported in and a line from LB I drew over it.

Thanks Oz Will do.

That’ll be the problem then. You can’t Boolean a line (in fact, you shouldn’t have even had the option to do it). Boolean operations require closed shapes because everything that happens to them is done by figuring out the overlapping areas, and a line has no area - it’s infinitely thin.
