Component->Cut Out Assembly issue

1.png

I'm trying to make this cut on both sides of this part. In the assembly, I added the tip piece, did the component->cut out op, and hid the piece. I then did the same thing to the other side with a mirror image of the piece, and then hid that one too.

Only it won't hide completely. You can see where one side is semi-tranparent, but it won't hide the entire part and I don't know why. It doesn't matter what side I do first, when I'm done with both, the side I did last will not hide completely. The tip pieces do not touch when assembled so there is no interference.

Any asssitance would be greatly appreciated and thank you.

Re: Component->Cut Out Assembly issue

Did you try to set the accuracy of your model to a lower value?

You can also try to make a cut out operation of the two tip pieces at a time (hold "CTRL"+ select the two tip pieces when selecting the reference parts)

Re: Component->Cut Out Assembly issue

I'm back to trying to fix this again. I can't get it to work no matter what. Now I'm getting an error "Cannot merge a part intersected by an assembly feature". I've turned this over to PTC support.
