yeah, i guess thats the key. knowing how to use them properly.
a few follow questions:
1. in your original instructions on booleans, you say
"8. delete top and bottom caps, delete floating verts"
do you mean by deleting all the individual faces of the cap? if so, how do i easily delete all the vertices that were left behind?
2. and then in #9, you say to cut in half. cut what in half, and why?
3. for number 12, insert extra loops through the "insert edge loop" tool?
4. and as for .obj objects. im having some issues importing them in.
