Smile Boolean Issues

Q. I know we have issues with MAX booleans, when I boolean an open surface, or a closed surface, the results vary, so I need a sure method to see if my model is open or closed. How do I find out?

Ans. Us sth. we call Euler Nos.

V = No. of vertices in the model.
E = No. of edges in the model.
F = No. of faces in the model.

if V-E+F = 0 then model is a closed surface and so will be a resulting boolean withanother closed surface.

cool???

tell me if it works...
