Site Modifiers - Two Pads with Retaining one inside the other

Question

Hi,

 

I'm having trouble getting a Pad with Retaining Edge to Work inside another Pad with Retaining Edge. I attach two screenshots. One is of a Pad with Retaining Edge inside another Pad With Retaining Edge and the other one is the way I believe the combination of the last two mentioned should work (the second screenshot is made though by a Pad with Retaining Edge containing a Pad with a Grade Limits)

 

Am I doing something wrong by placing a Pad with Retaining Edge inside another site modifier of the same mode?

Hi, Offest duplicate your pad by 10mm or 1/2 inch and convert to a grade limiter. Re generate the model and you should have a straight edge.

Thanks @Alan Woodwell but that's exactly what I did in the uppermost screenshot.

 

What I'm wondering is why doesn't a Pad with Retaining Edge inside another Pad with Retaining Edge have a straight edge. I suppose it would be logical that it would have a straight edge...

Yes, I must read the post more carefully, Agree sometimes it works. Not sure why, maybe someone can shed some light on it.
