    Can't cut with Void

    I'm trying to cut an extrusion (created in Plan & extruded up) with a Void (created in Elevation & extruded back)
    When I use the Cut Geometry tool, pick the solid and then the void, I get an error: "Can't keep elements Joined"
    Expanding the error message lists only the Void.
    So what can't it keep joined with?
    If I pick Unjoin Elements from the error dialog, I lose my solid completely.

    I reckon its where your void hits the edge of the solid: it looks like its a coincident point, which Ive had problems before with. If you change your solid extrusion so it continues further up into the void before you cut it, it might work?

    Good call, Alex!
    That was, indeed the problem.
    I did not know you couldn't do that.
    Thanks!
