I'm looking to make a jigsaw puzzle to be 3d printed. I'm making a cube that is 22cmx10cmx4mm and putting text on it and extruding it out 1.5mm from the surface of the cube. I then join the text and the cube making one object.
I have tried appending a jigsaw mesh and a boolean modifier to cut through the complete piece into jigsaw puzzle pieces but it's not working. It either doesn't cut through properly or it only saves half of the text and inverts the rest. I have tried both difference and intersect boolean modifiers. Intersect gets rid of the base and difference keeps the base but not all of the text.
Is there a way to divide a cube into puzzle pieces keeping the text on top of it?
