for the record… does exactly the same thing in VCARVE PRO - however i can at least go back to it’s diameter and change it from 2.728 height and 2.73 width to 2.73 uniformly. CC does not function this way. When I go back to edit said diameter, when I enter height and width as 2.73, hit apply, then some other arbitrary number is now in both cells.
Odd behavior… would think a set diameter is a set diameter. How does conjoining a rectangle affect the diameter of the previously set circle?
Shouldn’t have any effect on the height; however, you do lose a very small amount in width. Did you look at the size of the circle after drawing it and before the boolean operation? It could be that boolean operations convert the circle to a polygon so it’s like measuring a hex nut across the flats vs. across the points.
