I need a way to erase accurately a part of a mesh, using another mesh.

Two intersecting meshes

I need the big mesh to have a gap where the smaller mesh is. I don't need the smaller mesh, so it doesn't matter if it gets destroyed in the process/

This can be accomplished with a boolean modifier.

Add it on the large mesh and set the type to difference, then set the smaller mesh as it's target.

enter image description here

once you apply the modifier, you will have a hole in the large mesh, you may delete the small mesh

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I already tried it but it didn't work, turns out I had a copy of the mesh visible, so I didn't see the gap $\endgroup$ – Emlingur May 28 '15 at 15:47
