I want to cut the base shape with the cylinder in front of it after aligning its center edges with the highlighted edges on the base shape (as seen in the second frame of the first image). I additionally hope to have the cylinder bend on the faces of the base shape, to make all cuts perpendicular.
- The cutting cylinder should be parallel to the base shape.
- The cutting cylinder's center edges should be aligned (and overlapping) with highlighted edges in the second panel of the first image.
- The resulting cut should be perpendicular to the base shape's walls.
I have successfully used the boolean operator to make cuts in shapes, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to line it up, much less have it bend to conform to the faces of the base shape.
I am also considering adding a lip around the new opening, but I am hoping that a loop cut or something can solve that - though if I'm mistaken then assistance on that would be appreciated as well.
Any advice is appreciated, and I thank you for taking the time to read my post.
Edit: I have added a new image showing a very rough mock-up of how I want it to bend, though I hope it to do so along the face lines.
