I'm new to Blender, and have run into an issue with creating a boolean difference on two objects that both have bevels. As a test, I start with a simple cube and bevel 4 edges.
I then duplicate the object, resize it, and boolean difference the smaller one from inside the larger.
This works as expected, and I then resized the z-dimension to make it shorter. I duplicated the original cube and placed on the other.
I now want to take the top one and boolean difference it against the bottom cube, so I move it into position as shown:
This is where the problem occurs. At this point, if I boolean difference the top object, it doesn't work. It leaves me with the result shown here:
This is probably something simple, but I can't find a reference anywhere on what's going on or how to fix it. I'm also experiencing the same thing when I try to boolean difference text on an object face. The issues seem to be the same in both cases.
