Deleting a "unwanted pieces" of solid after subtracting
« on: April 02, 2018, 12:17:32 PM »
I made a "Torus", then another "Torus" inside of the first.  Subtracted the smaller, so that a hollow tube remained.
I made two parallel boxes, on each side of "Y"-0.
I "Solid Subtract"ed both boxes, so that I am left with two curved sleeves.
The problem is: I only want one sleeve and I can't get rid of the other.
I've tried using another solid, around, between, through, ......
After several hours, I'm ready to ask for help.
Please.

Never Mind.  I Did it!  All I had to do was make a solid box all the way around it, the piece I wanted to get rid of,  (again), but this time, instead of trying to subtract the box or the piece I wanted to get rid of, I subtracted it from the piece way on the other side of the drawing, that I wanted to keep.  Actually, just like the other times I subtracted.
I'm not feeling so very smart today I'll tell Ya!
Maybe someone else can read this and, Well, Have a good Laugh!

You only gave us 47 minutes to work on it, so we didn't have much of a chance  ;)

In any case always glad to hear when it works out.
