Help Cutting a Hole?

by rebeltaz

This is the file I am working on - https://ufile.io/ny7blqtm - This model will be 3d printed.

I have cut a question mark out of a box. I intend to print the question mark out as a separate piece and insert it into the hole in the box. I scaled one side of the dot so that the sides are beveled 0.9% I need to do that to the hook part, too, so that it can slide into the hole. For the life of me, I cannot figure out a way to do this.

@reddadsteve, maybe you might have an idea?

Smoke going thorough a Model

by Qayin

Frist of all Thanks to all those who answered all my other questions they were a major help. Now a new question how do you get smoke to go around a model insead of thorough the Model. I am trying to make a rocketship land with smoke and flame but a can't seem to get the smoke to go around the ship. I know that I have to use collision modifer along with ridgid body physics but can't seem to get the setting right. I included a link to the smoke simulation that I am using and did contact the person who posted the video and he did get back to me but his idea's didn't help. I also tried quick smoke but the same issue.

I imported images lined them and everything had been working fine untill I hid the images (done this many time) but when I unhid the images I discovered that they all had turned voilet and changed shape. Any idea's why this happened? The white plans is what it should look like.
