"No bodies remain after combine operation" error message

I've only had this error message since upgrading to 2016 maybe it's just a new message instead of getting "geometric error" or maybe it's a new problem altogether.


It happens when trying to combine bodies, say if you have a block and you subtract a complex part from it to get the negative of your mould, then you duplicate that resulting body and combine the original part with that to get your positive form for creating a mould. This is when the "no bodies remain..." error message comes up because the void you are filling is exact to the part in question.


Any suggestions around this other than scaling the part by like 0.0000001% or surfacing them back together?
