  • Hello, I am trying to model a car. I made the outside surfaces but when ever i try to close it i get different error or the close body have some open surfaces which i cannot close

    I cannot close the surface using boundary surface or other commands. If i close using some indirect techniques i always get some open surfaces. I don't want open surfaces as i want to convert it into a solid
