Re: Looking for simple STL file combining solution

Actually any shape or combination of shapes can be made into a "hole" for boolean subtraction, not just round and square. "Hole" is also very useful for transparency to see through and inside objects and to detect interference between parts. Glad you were able to achieve what you needed. Thanks Jul...
