Hi All   I am busy modeling the Tag Heaur connected watch and having problems in some area of modeling. First is the watch strap, i cant just boolean the holes out, it doesnt seem to edge the cylenders out, it just makes holes and i need to keep the pieces of cylinder that cross sections to the strap, how does one approach a boolean problem? below link to pic of watch

I find importing vector shapes and then surface (planar) filling them (and extrude from there) a lot easier than having to deal with boolean problems.. But thats just me..
