In my way of thinking, ‘Project face’ much better describes this tool. The projection is quite useful.
One of my frustrations using ‘cutting or removal’ shapes is that it leaves behind unsightly line artifacts. For example, in the following, I extruded the building sides up through a gable roof and removed the excess with a cutting shape along the roof. See the lines created.
It occurred to me to try the Replace face tool as a better solution. And it worked; well sorta… Started with this…
I projected the rectangular face of the top of the building walls onto the roof. Ta da…
Unfortunately, the tool completes when the first face was selected. It would be very useful to project onto multiple faces (a second in this case). Why not?
To make this work, I could draw half of the sketch, do the projection and then Mirror to have the job done. Unfortunately in architectural situations, designs are often non-symmetric — thus my request.
Thanks for considering this.
