How do you use the STRUCTURE --> CARVE option
I'm thinking you can "cut" a shape .... but doesnt seem to work at all.

It works pretty simple.
Simply select the object/shape you want to use to 'cut' and select the carve tool.
It will cut (2d only, meaning it will only cut the face it meats....so it won't create a full 3d cut).
Normally your cutter object will stay selected...so delete or hide if still needed.
Then it is best to clean the created vertexes as i noticed it very often creates unwanted (very nearby multiple vertexes). Then rebuild your faces.
Not super, but i suppose like any subtract/union/whatever tool, there aren't any 1 click tools. That is why i often prefure building from scratch instead of tools.

Arh! Thanks mate.
Works well, but as you say, it seems to creat artifacts and extras that need to be cleaned up/merged/deleted.
