Can't seem to add a hole

Morning all,

I'm just getting back into Mecway and doing some more basics. Using the built in modelling to create a flat plate, and a hole. When I try and use the hole function I get all sorts of errors, can't find face normal, doesn't like it when I chose the axis, is there a process to go through prior to putting in the hole?



  • The hole tool isn't very smart so you can't use it quite as freely as in CAD. There's no special process other than selecting a node and using the tool. But the node you select should be part of the surface of a solid or shell, not interior to a solid and not disconnected from the mesh.

    If that doesn't help, can you show an example and what the error message or failure was?
  • Hi Victor, thanks for coming back to me.

    I'll give it a go, might be that i need to find a node closest to the dimensions I need and edit it's position slightly.
