i wanted to make a character made completely out of cabels, so i used cylinders in the position that i wanted because bezier circles were not working the way i wanted them too, however after finishing the head, i wanted to add eyes and a mouth, so i used a template i made to see if i can but it inside, click boolean and it would cut out the eye holes, but its not working, am i doing something incorrect, if anyone has any answers or solutions for a different way that would be great enter image description here

i want the end result to be similar to this sculpt i made, with the holes going through the mesh if you get what i mean enter image description here

Try this settings:

  1. i changed from collection to object
  2. i choosed toppart as object
  3. i applied scale + rotation

Then select your "toppart" object and hide it.

I hope this is what you wanted to make.
