Subtract in place help?


Recommended Posts

I have been trying to figure out the subtracting. I figured out how to create a new mesh , ( the large green cylinder), that has the subtracted portion of two other meshes but, I can't figure out how to just subtract part 2 ( the small green cylinder) from part 1, ( the large white cylinder) in place.

Is it possible to create the subtracting geometry without ever rendering it? I have spent a s fair amount of time trying to figure this out on my own. I just haven't found an example that seems to be what I need or, I am looking in the wrong places?



As usual any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

var subCSG = CSGStem.subtract(wHole);
var mesh = subCSG.toMesh("csg",myMaterial,scene);
// this is the geometry, but it's a private property, so not supported. 
var geometry = mesh._geometry;

// you can apply this geometry to other meshes:
edit: adam has correctly pointed out we should be using the geometry property (without underscore)!
