New Boolean method for joining meshes is amazing game changer!

I just wanted to say thanks for this feature. I was away from Nomad for a bit, so hadn’t used the fairly recent boolean method for joining meshes before. It’s incredible - a real game changer for how we can make things, especially hard surface forms whose edges nearly always suffered in the past when voxel merging.

The boxes on left were voxel merged then smoothed, the ones on right Boolean merged then smoothed; note the perfect edges on the Boolean merged boxes.

Indeed very cool. Went almost unnoticed.

I believe it’s using this GitHub - elalish/manifold: Geometry library for topological robustness
Comes with its own sandbox: ManifoldCAD… (This lets you “program” your own models!)

It’s quite weird that there hasn’t been a usable open source mesh boolean engine until today. Good pick by Stéphane (who also contributed to the project making it quicker and more stable!)
