errors that come back

hello all,


this is driving me crazy..... its not the first time this has happened to me, but now that i have to send the SW file on to someone else to start the mechanics on it, i need to be able to send him a clean file, and i cant seem to get one.


the problem is that i have this model, pretty complicated built from surfaces, with 650 features, working on SW 2016 SP5- and what ever i do, when i save the file with no errors in it, then close and open it again, i get errors in it.

i even tried freezing most of the features, but still get one error. when i try to go to this feature to fix it, a lot more features show as errors.

and believe me- these are all features that i have fixed many times before, because i had to work on the model until i finished the design phase.

btw, these are not even very complicated features that get the errors- sometimes its a filled surface (that doesn't find the edges he need to fill), sometimes its a "move body" that suddenly cant find the body he used to move before.


im sorry but i cant send you guys the actual file because its a product in development.


do you guys have any idea?

did someone have the same problem and can tell me how he fixed it?


any help will be great,

thanks a lot,
