Introduction to Maya - Modeling Fundamentals Vol 2
This course will look in the fundamentals of modeling in Maya with an emphasis on creating good topology. It's aimed at people that have some modeling experience in Maya but are having trouble with complex objects.

Boolean difference messes up geometry all by itself

The pictures here represent before and after a boolean difference. All the other holes is made exactly the same way, but the last hole messes up everything.

Anyone got some good idea on how to fix this?

In the begining God created a whole lot of rigid bodies, and set some motion paths. He also set the lighting.

After Polygon > Boolean > Difference

Is the geometry of the other holes lost or just hidden under a plane?

Just hidden under the plane, but I scrapped the part and are doing it in another program, and will import it later, hopfully it will look better. It's a bit sad that maya doesn't work with booleans in a proper volumetric way, I really like modeling like that. But I just have to composite in something and hope for the best. 8)

You should have tried to insert some faces before booling.
