I have this circle: enter image description here

And i'm trying to cut another circle out of the center of it, roughly in a shape like this: enter image description here

I've looked all over the internet, but I couldn't find anything. The only tutorial I could find about this was made in 2013, so it was a much earlier version of Blender that I couldn't follow along with. I started using Blender yesterday. Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you!

    $\begingroup$ you can inset your selection (i), scale on the X axis to make the inner circle oval, then select the oval face and press X > Delete Only Face $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ didnt you try to select the top side vertices of the cylinder while in edit mode then do copy and then scale it to the size you want using the S Key $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1

  1. Select the object that will be the "hole" in the 2nd object,

  2. Shift + select the target object.

  3. Tab to enter edit mode

  4. Numpad 7 to go to top view (the cut will be projected so the view is important).

  5. Enter edit mode with both selected, go to mesh, knife project.

  6. Then just remove the resulting face.
