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

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
