Short description of error
When using a boolean modifier to unite two objects, sometimes geometry is created inside the mesh. This states a Problem as this makes it impossible to smooth out the connection between the combined Object. (It gets even worse)
Moving the objects around in a trial & error fashion can solve this issue, however that requires a lot of time and is far from optimal.
I often use the boolean modifier to join the palm of a hand with the indiviual fingers. That is also the case for the attached file, where we can see that out of five fingers only the middle finger is combined optimal.
I tried "Select" -->"Select all by trait"--> "Interior Faces" to clean up the inside topology, but it did not recognize any of it.
I have experienced the issue in several Versions of Blender: 2.78, 2.79 and now 2.8, but did not know about the report feature until the official youtube channels about bug reporting.
Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
- Open attached file
- Select Palm
- Go into local view
- (optional, just for reviewing) look inside the mesh
- apply modifiers
- try sculpting
Thank you very much for your hard work.
