Spaceclaim – bodies cannot be subtracted from enclosure body

      Hello,

      I am struggling to understand why the fins of my model cannot be captured when i try to make an enclosure around the entire model (see pictures below). When I just make an enclosure around the 4 bodies (the 4 fins) it seems to work.

      You have to fix the error, "Cannot merge bodies. (Operation failed because the faces and edges would combine in a way that does not form a valid solid or surface)" and merge the bodies before the enclosure will work. This looks like a problem:
      You can also slice your body into 1/4 symmetry, then you only have to fix one fin. Make the cutting planes at 45 degrees away from the fins.
