Hi Giles,

thanks again for the quick answer. Here are the files. "chip" is the large
solid block I mentioned and "positive" contains two shapes that have one
common coplanar face. Here's the code I used to get the error.

module example003()


difference() {

import_stl("chip.stl", convexity = 5);

import_stl("positive.stl", convexity = 5);




F5 works, F6 doesn't.

Thanks again in advance.
