I need to subtract a body and get this error: "Through face does not intersect path of the tool"
Look at the part file attached. It's a very simple model.
Everything is fine until you change helix(1) end limit from 40mm to 45mm. Then subtract stops working.
I tried to play with tolerances but with no luck. It makes difference but in a quite random manner.
Can anybody help me to adjust tolerances and explain what I'm doing wrong?
Thank you for your reply. You are right. I just was not aware of "preserve shape" feature.
I've been advised to sweep sheets and then just "trim body" with it. Works like a charm.
