Adobe Dimensions - I'm suddenly forgetting how to "cut hole" in a 3d object.  for example:  cutting a hole that passes through a sphere (or a cube, etc).   I recall that the steps included

- grouping the objects (for example, a sphere, with a cylinder that passes through the sphere)

- then applying a mask, or some other effect, to "hide" the cylinder.

 

the effect I'm going for is to subtract the cylinder shape from the sphere, so that a "hole" is cut through the sphere.

 

frustrating... I recall beiing able to do this before.  but can't remember and can't find previous tutorials

 

thank you!

By @Greg30065402nztt

its called a Boolean

read https://community.adobe.com/t5/dimension-discussions/how-to-place-a-hole-in-a-solid-shape/m-p/126365...

 

basically its an old school way of making a hole which you can still do in Blender or old copies of Photoshop before Adobe dropped everything 3D... to be clear if you just do a Boolean then Dimension will not rrendor it correct because it doesn't know what it is and you have to then re-mesh the model in what ever software you like to model with and that link has examples i've already posted
