 December 8, 2007, 12:38 Simple Gambit problem #1 Meenu Guest   Posts: n/a I want a cube with a circular inlet on its top face! I tried it in Gambit by making a cube(volume) and then subtract a circle from top face but it doesn't allow and says "cannot subtract a face from upper topology" Also, i tried by starting from vertices and made 6 faces of cube then subtracting circle from top face but then when i ask it to convert it into volume it gives an error "Is this an open shell" my guess is that it considers it a solid volume and making a circular inlet in top face does not make sense but then how do tell gambit that i have air in this volume?? .....What is the way to get around with this??
