could someone please help me fill this surface body? It was made in sw2016. I tried the thicken cmd, but with no luck. Also tried with "knit" cmd and checked "make solid" but with no luck.
Hello Benea,.. visually, the open surface/gap is shown as blue highlighted although, I'd suggest running "Tools/Evaluate/Check" to find problems..(image attached)
There are three surface bodies that need to be combined using the knit surface command. In the knit surface command there is a checkbox to make solid. Tick that and click ok.
Looking at your part in an iso view, one small surface is on the right side. One is the top surface and the last is the rest of the body.
You must to add 2 surfaces have a look
Both are in red
it appears that surface slipped through my fingers. thx
Looking at your attached model there are several ways to accomplish the same design easier, faster and with better design intent, which in turn should also help resolve your thickening issue.
Based on what you are doing it should take maybe ~20 feature/commands, with a solid extrude then a surface solid cut.
