Taret bodies and Tool Bodies
5 Attachment(s)
Hi all,

I have got it, but am not sure whether am i doing it the correct way.

I am currently trying to construct something in the form of this shape (sorry for the bad drawing.)

Attachment 17897

I used skin/loft to construct the shape but its hollow inside.
Than i use a "box" enclosure to enclose it. After which, I unfreeze the solid body (box).

Lastly, I use a boolean operation to subtract the unwanted parts out.

What i want to ask is for the boolean operation "Subtract",
Target bodies means what?
Tool Bodies means what?

Also, how can i make sure that what i got is a solid object and am i doing it the correct way?
Thanks in advance!

Best regard,
