So, my question is: Is there a way to put a "margin" of a few thousandths of an inch between the part and the cavity when I do the subtraction? If so, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! ~Mark
Yes, use Indent feature
You can also scale up the part you want to subtract to create the gap using combine.
You could also use an offset surface and use that to Split the other body. Obviously this deprives you of using the combine/subtract goodness .
Thank you all for the assistance. I've tried both ways and they both worked for me.
