123D Design introduces lines when a sphere is scaled non-uniformly - is that a problem?

Posted · 123D Design introduces lines when a sphere is scaled non-uniformly - is that a problem?

I want to make some pretty simple tubes to print for use as light diffusers. I'm using Autodesk 123D Design and I'm encountering a phenomenon which I want to know whether it would affect the print. The method I'm using involves squashing a sphere and subtracting it from a solid cylinder. Squashing the sphere introduces a line for some reason and I don't know what it's there for or whether it might affect the print.

    no, I don't think so,

    You can always check when exporting it and import it into Cura and see if there is something in that area.

    ps: just checked it: it is ok.
