Sometime i cut in pieces to repair virtual things. Anyway, there is no differences between real and virtual on your final mesh. but Boolean logic work in real things only. hope it helps teguhtf __________________ Now Or Never!!!

Try to import it as STEP file, the result should be a real volume. Handling with real volumes, is just a MUST if you need to work with boolean operation. (extracting fluid volume form solid is the only operation which needs boolean operation (from my side). All the others can be handled with virtual tools) But working with real volumes is much easier than working with virtual ones (but not impossible) __________________ In memory of my friend Hervé: CFD engineer & freerider

All the complex geometry i imported keep remain Real so far. Take a try. __________________ Herntan, Add Reputation if I am right
