Default CartoonDog Help!!

First off I have to say, Kurt, this is a great tutorial, thanks for all the effort.
Now that that's out of the way, I have a problem. All the boolean operations have worked just fine, but I'm on the leg, the first one you do on the video and when I try to to the boolean operation on it, the whole model dissapears. Both the body section and the leg. I made sure that the leg was going inside the body all the way, I even went inside and used the split polygon tool to make sure that whole faces were inside, and nothing is working. Just to make sure that the problem wasn't that not all of the let was going it I put it so just the foot was sticking out and everything still dissapeared. Can you please help?

Ok bud... What it looks like was you had some faces that where 5 sided and for some reason was causing booleans not to work right. I cut the model in half and fixed the 5 side faces and it work right after that. I've attached 2 files one before I attached and after I attached the leg.

You should not have any trouble preforing the booleans now.

Default eh?

I cant open the files that you gave me because they are apparently for Maya 6, and I have Maya5. I tried a couple of things and I can union a regular cube to the arm, but it doesn't work with the body, that tells me the prob is with the body of the dog. I looked all over it and I didn't see any 5 sided polygons at all, if possible could you make the file compatible with maya 5 and/or could you describe where the prob is? ....or you could even make some pics of it like highlighting where the prob is or something like that. I really apreciate you helping me by the way:p
