"Yes - because they can't force the modelling of real solids! That is,
they are not true solid modellers. So it's not surprising that they
can't create a solid (except by luck) if they don't know what one is..."

...just to clarify: Are there REALLY any true solid modellers? My
understanding has been that most - if not all "solid" modellers are just
surface modellers which hide the underlying math from the user by applying a
"solid" modelling interface paradigm..... no?
