enter image description here These are two plans I want to cut to only keep the outside of the vertical plane. There is a mirror modifier applied on z axe. I tried to use the Boolean Intersect Tool. So my question is how to use one plane (object) as a cutter to cut away from another plane (object).

enter image description here I removed the mirror modifier and tried with 3D object but nothing happens as I hit CTRL+ F key Intersect(Boolean). I tried with the Intersect knife tool and "No Intersection found" diplays. Thanks for your help.

  • $\begingroup$ It's quite hard to tell from your screenshot, where exactly the mirror modifier is. Either add another screenshot that shows the mirrored object in Edit Mode or consider uploading your file to blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com and adding the given link to your question. $\endgroup$ – metaphor_set Sep 15 '16 at 8:47

Finally I found the problem: Boolean Intersect (and Knife Tool) work only if the objects are joined.

  • $\begingroup$ Actually, that's not the case. Boolean works just fine with two separate objects. The result depends on how exactly both objects overlap. $\endgroup$ – metaphor_set Sep 15 '16 at 10:18
