Formit: Booleans and groups, how to…

I really like Formit. It gives me the freedom to translate my early ideas in real volumes.

To organize our scene we make use of groups. But what if we have two groups and we want to cut one object from within one group using an object which is in another group.

For example: how can we cut the solid in the floor group using the solids in the stair group?

Well this functionality was implemented in the 2016 fall release. Just use the “Cut geometry” tool in the “Advanced modeling tools” menu.

Formit-Groups-Boolean function

A wizard will guide you through the process…


The goal is that you first need to select the object to be cut and this does NOT means that you first need to edit the group. You can select objects within a group immediately.

Next you can select one OR more cutting objects.

Finally click on the check mark in the wizard.
