Hello

Apologies if this already has been answered, but I’m trying to fill an object so I can create a boole operation with volumes
I find that when I transform an open set of polygons into a volume, the volume stays “empty” and thus if I attempt volume based boolean operations, I don’t a whole volume, just a shell.

See below a project that gives me what I am looking for using a regular Boole, but I would prefer to use Volumes for this.  Is there a way to take a group of polygons and “fill” them with volumes for a better Boole effect?

Thanks!

Hi Alex,

Thanks for the file and using Dropbox!

Here is the cube and the lower leg back, set in Volume.

The quick fix is given with the MoGraph Voronoi Fracture:

Let me know if you need anything else. As usual, I’m happy to look into it.

Cheers
