[Bug] When use the Cut Off Tool, the inside becomes an empty object.

SculptTree feels quite difficult and uncomfortable to manage.

So, when the work is completed for each part, the sub-trees are temporarily grouped with Merge Sub-Tree (no boolean), and whenever modification is needed, the Object-ify (Separate) function is used to perform separation work.


As the work continues, there is a part that needs to be cut out as a whole, so without using Object-ify (Separate)

I used Cut Off Tool.



The result is an object with an empty inside, such as an image (left-below).

It was not the result I wanted, so after restoring it to its original state

This time, after separating the parts with the Object-ify (Separate) function, I did the same work as before using Through All Volumes of Cut Off.

This time, the results came out as i wnat it is. (right-below)

It seemed to be the same, but the result was completely different.


The question is...

  1. Is it a bug of the Cut Off tool?
  2. Or is it due to some mechanism of Merge Sub-Tree(no boolean)?

Hi @Carlosan

The version when I tested it was 4.9.67 (GL64, DX).
As you said, I updated to version 4.9.72, but the problems were still there.

Both Cut Off and Split show the same problems.

attach files in here
Test_Merge (no booleans).zip

Try to cut/divide through the overlapping area rather than a single object.
It will appear as in the image
