Flex issues with complex geometry

Question asked by Bob Smith on Nov 26, 2017

I'm trying to flex a linear structure into a ring and I'm having issues with the flex feature. I get a body with surface gaps (see picture).

Anyone have a better way to do this? Couple things I've tried:

 

Converting all features to a single body and performing flex (same result)

Exporting as a .STL, re-importing it, and performing flex (very very slow, but gave promising results on a simpler version that was giving me the same issue)

Exporting as a .IGS, re-importing it, and performing flex (the preview is exactly what I want, but the end result is the same as above). If only I could save previews...

Any help is much appreciated!
