Getting rid of the waste

GregV's picture

I am working on chapter 8 and the dovetails.  I have completed the pins and tails and am trying to get rid of the final little sliver on the bottom but when I try to select for push/pull the whole front gets selected and not just the sliver.  I zoom in real close with no change.  Deselected/Reselected the component, edit component and still cant get rid of it.  Any suggestions? 

Thanks all for the help.

Greg, it sounds to me as if (post #160491, reply #1 of 3)

Greg, it sounds to me as if you haven't divided the surface into two separate faces. You should have a face for the "sliver" and another for the rest. Check to see that the lines defining that little bit actually intersect the edges of the face. It may be that a line is close but doesn't quite reach the edge.

We need to talk Google into adding tools to the palette - chisel, saw, mallet, etc.  ;-)

That's a great idea, Ralph. (post #160491, reply #3 of 3)
