I'm building a kitchen island as a morph and I'm trying to cut out a counter top for farm house sink. I'm sure this is a basic thing to do but I'm having trouble executing. I've looked on utube and cannot figure it out. Hence my name the "Rookie". Thanks.

You can also create lines on the morph surface to create a surface within a surface (area within and area) that you can then push/pull with the pet palette options.

SEO is probably easier though.

Another fast way is to create two morph surfaces in the same plane, one for the counter and one for the hole you need. Merge the two morphs with Union. Then using the special sub-element cursor , select the hole morph and delete it. That will make your hole. Then you can extrude the counter morph to the thickness you need. Don't forget to switch the selection cursor back to normal !

I am still wondering for what reason this is being built as a Morph? Rather than using the standard building tools then possibly being converted at the end to possibly detail?

David,
I have used this method in the past numerous times, but it does not seem to work with ver. 23. Did something change somewhere, or am I missing something. I have tried and tried, but cannot get it to work with 23. Any suggestions out there?
Thanks.

I am pretty sure nothing has changed with the morph tool.
So it should work the same as it did before.
What part of the procedure is not working and can you show an image of what you are trying to do?
