I'm mapping again, except this time I had the forethought to draw out plans, calculate distances in feet to GTK units. This thread is where I will post a lot of noobish questions about how to accomplish something in GTKRadient, and hope that someone can answer me. First question: I have an inverted bevel plane in between two capped cylinders, and I need to remove the blue portion of this mesh. I've tried deleting colums and rows, but that does not accomplish anything. Is there a way to remove the blue portion of the selected plane? 1hg7.jpg

I thought you couldn't clip planes... Loading GTKRadient to see, and no you can't

Oh.. I could have sworn I did it before... What version are you using? 1.5? I'm pretty sure it worked in 1.3.. nope. I guess I was wrong.. :(

I'm using 1.4, because that is the latest stable one. And in the 1.5 the interface has changed, and I prefer the older one.

Sorry for the double post, but if someone knows of a really good tutorial for patch-mesh and curve manipulation (how to get 45 degree bevels, how to accomplish things like what I mentioned in the first post, etc.)

Im pretty sure you cant just slice off sections of curves. Try making a non-curve cilender by making a 30 sided figure.
