I made multibodied part with a shaft going through the center of a plate (two intersecting solid bodies). I would like to cut the union out of the shaft leaving two shafts (one on each side) and a plate. If I use the Combine->subtract option, then the plate disapears. Is there a way to subtract the union from the shaft, but leave the plate? I am using SW2006 SP4.1.
I know of several workarounds for this example, but none that would work with more complicated parts.
