Hi guys,


I am in the midst of a school project.

As I'm relatively new to Solidworks and has been trying to figure majority of the functions by watching youtube.

In the midst of modelling a pipe routing for simulation, I have encountered some issue.

In the screenshot, the status is shown to be "failed. Non watertight model" with quite a number of "zero-thickness curve/line invalid contacts". Upon checking, realize the errors occur at the neck flange connections.

Are these "zero-thickness curve/line invalid contacts" the leaks?

While using leak tracker, the screenshot below shows the leak, but I am not able to resolve the leak.

Hoping some kind soul can enlighten me on if my understanding is right and how the leaks can be resolved.

As time is running out for me, hope i can get a reply soon.


thanks guys
