Default Boolean a Plane

Hi,

Ive been tearing my hair out trying to boolean an object (plane) but realized it need to be a solid objective (extruded) in order to boolean but what would be the best way to cut a hold from a plane?



Many thanks all

either move the vertices into the shape of the hole or use the split polygon tool to draw the shape and then delete the unwanted faces.

whenever i have to bool out a complex shape into a plane I usually do exactly what U said, extrude the edges, then fill hole, apply the 2nd object with boolean operation and delete the added geomtry from first place again. this workaround does take just some seconds and isnīt too complicated.
