Boolean - FUSE or CUT -- strange

Hello all

If anybody has observed this behavior.

I tried the 'bop' command in THarness.
I created 2 solids ( say a box and cylinder ).

When I do a 'bopfuse' it is actually cutting
and for 'bopcut' is is fusing into one.

The outputs are inverse of the desired input.

What is orientation of your shapes? Where do the normals to faces point to? Use the command "normals" to get imagination about the actual normals directions.

I checked the normals.
Using the 'invert' command and then tried boolean.
Its OK .. thanks

But should I 'invert' or 'complement' .. what is the
difference between these commands on a Shape ?

Look at the description of the methods Reverse and Complement of the package TopAbs to see the difference.
