Bugtrooper:
Thanks!
And by the way... I joined the tain project earlier on 3DVIA, and wanted to ask that can I help?

To complete the operation You need a flat surface do the union, then do a  bend modifier to that, to get your curve.

I'm not too sure I understand. I've boolean-subtracted spheres, cubic figures, and (lathed) objects with round surfaces from each other before, and I don't always get the error message. In fact, to create a cresent-looking hemisphere, I subtracted a smaller circle from a bigger one, and it worked; amoung the random times it mysteriously does.

The reason I revived this thread is because, as I've consistently ran into in the past, I ran into this error message again when  trying to subtract a "screw" object from my Cannon chess piece; this, to create the cannon's main body component with a hole drilled through it. Whether it's B-A or A-B, I still get this "error 3" message.

I have attached a different Boolean Operations script that might work in those tricky situations.  The instructions are a bit different, so be sure to read the header in the script file.
