Been trying to get this vector showing in the screen shot to be welded together with the plane and I'm not able to join them using difference in the boolean modifier (assuming that's the correct way?). The idea is to make the film strip look like glass and I added the plane to make up for the hollow parts (which would also be glass)

enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ Curves (and text) do not work with booleans. you need to convert to mesh (Alt+C) $\endgroup$ – user1853 Nov 13 '15 at 2:12
  • $\begingroup$ Got it thanks. However, after converting to mesh it still didn't join the plane and vector when I did the boolean...why is that? $\endgroup$ – lakerice Nov 13 '15 at 2:22
  • $\begingroup$ it looks like the file you uploaded is not the same as the file you are showing in this screenshot. it's difficult to tell you how to fix this without knowing the geometry in question. $\endgroup$ – zeffii Nov 13 '15 at 14:11
  • $\begingroup$ Most of the time the Boolean Modifier is not the answer. Here too. $\endgroup$ – zeffii Nov 13 '15 at 14:50
