Hello I'm almost a newbbe in onshape and I have a problem to remove parts in a object. I don't know if this is possible.
For this object an inner life to be cut off, which consists of a different object. see blow

This kernel should be removed from the yellow part. The result should be like this

Is this possible in Onshape, and when, how can i make this

regards Franz

    Check out the Boolean tool. You can add, subtract, and intersect using multiple parts. In your case, subtract the second model from the first and keep the tool if you wish and you will have both parts. The Boolean tool looks like a little Venn diagram.
