I’m hoping to find someone to guide me here…
I’m trying to create a recess for a drawer pull. It’s an easy setup that will be repeatable on a series of drawers. But when I try to model it, I’m getting a very strange result. This is kind of long, but I want to show the process. Details with the step by step here:
This is the result I now have (but you’ll see the problem below):
To make this, I created the following design:
Step one, create the base at full thickness of the piece (.75")
I can hollow it out easily with a Round Subtraction of .5"
Which works…but leaves a gap under the knob because it’s not flat on the bottom…which is expected and is where the start of the problem occurs.
So…I’d like to create a flat plateau for the knob to sit on. So I added the center circle and regenerate the subtraction
and I get the plateau…
SO HERE COMES THE PROBLEM:
The plateau is at the same level as outside of the recess. I would like to LOWER the plateau…make it .2 inches lower than it is right now so that the knob base sits inside the recess a bit.
So I started over, created the base, then lowered the plateau circle by .2
Now the circle is lower
Now I regenerate the round recess between the outside of the recess and the lowered center circle
and THIS is what I see:
I end up with a volcano instead of a plateau…WHY??? No matter what I do, I can’t seem to get rid of the rim of the volcano.
I tried to create an offset circle, and tried to build the recess to the inset (to try to eliminate the circle itself as a divider)…and I got THIS (which I don’t think is even possible - note the overhang inside the hole):
OK…Can someone tell me what’s wrong here?
