    hi all, please HELP!

    i am trying to cut out a part of a curved surface -i.e surf1- (that only has 1 side. basically an extruded curve).

    • I embed a curve -Curve1- on surf1 at the point which.

    • Then i embed another curve -Curve2- some distance above it, and rule a surface (from curve 1 to curve2).

    Now there is a surface (surf1) with the new surface (surf2) embeded in it, at a certain height.

    i would like to cut out surf2 from surf1, so that all that remains is surf1 modified. (remeber, it is always a palnner curved surface)

    Simple enough.... but impossible for me to achieve! why!?!? :(

    i tried "Surf Intersect", but wont work. it usually gives me the message: "too few control points".

    what am i doing wrong?

    thanks for the Help

    ps: please dont tell me to do the tutorials... because i did already!
