Hello, assuming that I have an irregular object. I want to hollow it by leaving a specific thickness in all edges. I can use cut-extrude if the object were rectangular. How to do it if the object were irregular?
Thanks. After using the Shell feature with preview, I noticed a problem. I drilled some holes on one surface (the top surface in this case) of the irregular block. The holes went through the object. The Shell feature created some funny looking preview. Is there anything that I can do besides making the shell first and then drill the holes?
Another question is: Can I make the bottom surface of the irregular object open? To simply the discussion, let's assume that I have a solid box. I drilled some holes from the top all the way to the bottom. Now, I want to make the middle of the box empty with the top and four sides 5mm thick. As for the bottom, I want it to cut through so that when I invert the box, I can put things inside. It is very easy to do it using cut-extrude if the object were rectangular.
Use the faces to remove option in the shell command (I think it's the orange one), this will open up your box with the faces you select removed.
Shell before you place the holes. Use the roll back bar, then shell.
