I am trying to follow Andrew Price's Anvil tutorial using Blender 2.8 and the 'Difference' modifier just isn't working for me. I don't have the 'Maximum Draw Type' that I can change from solid to wireframe (mentioned at 5:07 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxMwa0njGSM)
I started a new Blender project and I was able to start a new project and 'cut' a cube with the difference modifier just fine, AFTER I applied the modifier. But I was unable to use the same technique to continue cutting the anvil back in my anvil project.
Can you see any reason why my difference is not working and/or suggest what I should do to make it work? I've spent more time than I want stuck on what seems like should be an easy problem, ah Blender ;-)
