The Problem of Boolean calculations in 3D
In my case Blender's Boolean had always functioned well. All I needed so far had been solved with the modifier and its basic operations. The problem began to appear when I began my studies on prosthetics. The first fire test I did was to create a hypothetical prosthesis for a digital skull that had suffered considerable loss of bone tissue. To me it seemed obvious that all would work well, but as I started working the Boolean on the complex mesh of a skull, I realized what a problem I had gotten myself into.
The Boolean and orthognathic surgeryIn August 2014 I was contacted via email by Dr. Everton da Rosa, a renowned orthognathic surgeon seeking partnership for the development of a surgical planning technology using free and open-source software.
