Subtract spiral of ring

hey there,

I’m trying to subtract a spiral out of a ring but somehow the done button won’t appear. With a closed ring its possible. Has anybody an idea why?

I have come across this anomaly before. By chance, do you have more than one body occupying the same space? In other words, do you two spirals or two rings? Is it possible that you already subtracted the spiral in which case the spiral and ring are not intersecting therefore the Done button will not appear.
Just trying to offer some troubleshooting here.

ok, got it. I had to increase the diameter of the spiral because it touched the inner surface of the ring. the subtraction would have produced a line on that surface, that is probably not allowed.

Is this what you are trying to achieve?
