Train Sim Modeler question, how to cut into model faces?

G'day everyone,

Just a question regarding Train Sim Modeler, how to cut into model faces? So that you can extrude them for lights and verts and heaps of other detailing in your models?

I do know that Gmax, Google Sketchup and Blender can cut into model faces,, but for years I've been wanting to know how to do it in Train Sim Modeler, any ideas would be appreciated SmileSmile Thanks in advance SmileSmile

Regards, Phil

Hi Phil,

If you are talking about boolean operations then I pretty sure that TSM does not support that function.

I don't use TSM but the closest thing I found to 'cut model faces' is the subdivide tool. You could move the vertices to the co-ordinates where you want to extrude edges to start. Probably making the separate parts and stitching them together would be faster.

That is the advantage of the more complex modelling tools, they make for a more efficient work flow, potentially speeding up model construction.

Cheers,

Marek.

Hi Marek,

Thanks for your reply mate, I know that TSM can cut the polygon from the model without deleting it to create doors and windows etc... But I agree with you TSM doesn't support cutting into a face and then extruding it inwards or outwards which is sad but at least I can make some parts if needed in Blender, Gmax or Google Sketchup which all allow me to do those things SmileSmile
