    When I make cuts to the model. There are places where I can only cut outward, but not inward. What is the problem?

      make sure to check those normals! https://hardops-manual.readthedocs.io/en/latest/boolean_beginner_tips/#check-that-face-orientation https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/modeling/meshes/editing/mesh/normals.html#recalculate

    I would love to give this more stars but I find it frustrating to use, particularly Boxcutter. Despite having object orientation selected, the cut ends up out in space somewhere. The other quirks I can chalk up to a lack of familiarity, but this makes it nearly useless. I didn't want to gripe about this here but I have been unable to find where I can submit a question. Supposedly this link had such a place, but couldn't find it. (https://hardops-manual.readthedocs.io/en/latest/faq/#how-do-i-update-hard-ops-boxcutter). I'm using Blender 3.3 and yes, I did update to the latest version, closed and restarted Blender.

      Thank you for your insight on the experience. When it comes to getting started with boxcutter, a playlist of tips was added to assist new users. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjqpj14voWsWl4A_wxblCbw2BQzCFw0Op Having a drawing appear in an incorrect location is a result of selection typically. Default unmodified behavior draws on the surface of the selected object if the beginning of the operation is on the surface of the selected object. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/885319227085561927/1027696563784528023/blender_9Gz50tyJOV.mp4 The above link shows me enabling the latest version and demonstrating that aspect. The next area to investigate is the alignment area. https://i.imgur.com/ys8GfMd.png If set to object, it will align to the object if the drawing originates on the surface. If a surface is not detected, view is used in order to keep things moving. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/885319227085561927/1027698018306244608/blender_LCihpNDkKe.mp4 The above demo should demonstrate that in action. I hope that is helpful. When it comes to support on BM, on the side there is the ask a question button. https://i.imgur.com/bHwwoVt.png Hope that helps you with getting support. Thanks for your review. It's always helpful to know what pitfalls users experience so we may aim to curtail it. Send us a question if you require additional assistance.

    One of the best addons for Blender and absolutely necessary for hard surface modeling.

    A must-have add-on if you do any serious modeling in Blender! The UI/UX is fantastic, with numerous well-organized and well-thought-out menus and settings. Many great tutorials on YouTube too! Couldn't recommend any higher.

      in the event of installation issues, close / reopen blender and you’ll be good to go! Thanks for the rating!

    The combo of these addons is incredibly powerful!
    No way I would've learned the non-destructive workflow in Blender without the massive help of these tools. It still took some time to wrap my head around the principles, but with the help of many useful video tutorials out there (also the Blenderbros came to the rescue), I eventually managed it somehow.
    I'm creating game art with it and there is no way around traditional mesh editing for this, but to be able to create concept art and even complete model prototypes in a non destructive way is damn awesome! It basically brings over the mech CAD workflow to a mesh editing suite and it does it extremely well, with modifier resorting etc.

    Another important point to me is UX and i want to clearly state here that you guys do a fantastic job with it! I own the bundle since quite some time and saw it growing and at some points you had to inevitably do changes to the UI and such, but since it's built upon such a stable and great concept, it never broke the user experience.. Great job with this!
    Thank you very much for all the hard work that went into it and for the reasonable pricetag.

    Amazing work on these sets of tools! You have saved us so much time with creating fine detail in our models. I don't think I could ever go back to the manual process of creating cutters for hard surface Boolean work again. Thank you!
