Box cutter simple question

Question Modeling

Hi guys.

Why it doesn't automatically cut the shape just like the teacher? And by the way, I pressed ''X'' and it did nothing. As soon as the teacher form the shape, it cuts through the giant piece. It does not the same for me.

What is wrong with my box cutter?

    Hi Max,

    If I'm not mistaken, you should press ENTER to make the cut.

    ho, I noticed, it has to be in boolean mode - difference by default. It wasn't for me. When you're making the Ngon, it has to be red, not grey. Red means it's a boolean - difference. To make it Boolean - difference, you have to click on the mesh first. :-) Now I understand.
