I am trying to model a very simple, two piece necklace. The "plate" is a simple mesh with roughly half of it cut away. The "text" is two letters in cursive. Ideally, the plate and the text are to be combined in a way such that the part of the plate that is filled in will have the first letter cut out of it, and the part of the plate with empty space will have the second letter floating in it.
However, to see the effects of the cutout, I have to either remove the text or move the text mesh away (thus revealing the cutout but moving the "l" away from its desired position).
Is there a way to perform some kind of difference operation / combination of operations where the "m" would be cutout of the plate while the "l" is left in place?
Thankyou for your time and effort.
