Anybody know a way to "drill" a hole in a lathe object? i have tried adding a cylinder with the matte colour, but it masks the whole object rather than just the hole i need.

Hi Liam,

If you are wanting to punch a hole in the Lathe object (like cutting a shape and pasting in the lathe path in the drawing window), then there's currently no way of doing that. However, if you are trying to create a hole like a donut, what you can do is pull the path away from the Y-Axis in the drawing window. By pulling the path away from the axis, it will create a hole in the center of the lathe object. The lathe object revolves around the Y-Axis, so if the path is not touching the Y-Axis, it will create a hole in the center.

Hope this helps.

Best,
Edward
