Solid components or Groups are the only objects you can use with BoolTools. A solid can be combined with another solid using the Union tool.
You will receive a notice if you use any BoolTools operation and one of the objects is not solid.
You can subtract the second selected solid from the first solid with the difference tool.
You can replace two solids with their interaction by using the intersection tool.
To use a solid to trim another solid and keep both, you can use the trim tool.
Split Tools make it easy to intersect two solids and keep all the results.
Single Object Union
To assemble all nested solids into one, click a single object.

About BoolTools 2
In fact, BoolTools' original plug-in had some useful functions, especially for dealing with small complex objects. However, there were some limitations.
The internal SketchUp geometry engine sometimes has trouble with handling high-precision intersections required for Boolean operations. It is a problem even for Pro Solid Tools.
It's because of this that so many Solid Tools users have adopted the copy and 'scale-up' workflow to avoid failures. As well as those limitations, we have improved some of those with BoolTools.
