Drawing a half circle in Carbide Create?

Post by roboto » Fri Feb 05, 2016 8:01 pm

Hi everyone,

I need some help figuring out how to draw a half circle (Basically a "U") and can't figure out how to cut the top of the circle off. Anyone have a better grasp on the Carbide Create drawing tools than me?

Thanks!

Not sure what you mean by a half circle as a U. But if you draw a circle, then a box and set them on top of each other, you can do a boolean union or weld in other programs. Then go to edit mode and manually delete or add nodes. That should get you started to where you need to be
