           Summary: CSG Make Hollow should mitre brush edges
           Product: GtkRadiant
           Version: 1.4

        OS/Version: Windows 2000/XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2

The make hollow function works great for simple brushes, but complex brush 
shapes will create a set of brushes that intersect the volume of the the 
brushes that represent the hollow of the origional brush.  From what I have 
read about map design, beveling the touching edges of walls is the better way 
to create a room, but the make hollow currently doesn't do that.  Adding this 
functionality would simplify adding textures (since now it creates all sorts of 
competing faces)

Example: create a sphere from a brush, and then make the sphere hollow, then 
examine the new brushes created and how they intersect the brushes contiguous 
to them.
