Trying to model this impeller fan, i have created all the bodies and now when i try and combine it wont. See pic.
Have also tried intersect function and it wont works either.
Appreciate any suggestions.
Bryce... If you do a move face (offset) on each side (can be one command) of .03mm this will create enough intersection of the parts so they will combine.
I added a circular pattern in.. Wasn't in the model you attached.
Edit:.. For some reason if I use .05mm for the offset I get a slightly different preview for the Combine. Looks like .03mm would be the absolute minimum that will work on this.
As Dennis suggests, offset is best as you always have the risk going size for size of this happening.
The combine did however work on mine (after adding circular pattern), what version are you using?
2016 SP 5.0.
Would love to upgrade but other people you work with don't see the need...
Combine works for me on SW2018 SP 4 though it fails on SW2016 (the version on which file is made)
Interesting.. I did my screenshots and comments with 2016. When I use 2018 SP3.0 it seems to be a hit or miss type of thing. Sometimes combines, sometimes does not.. VOR on or off.
Just wanted to mention, Bryce. If need be you can split a face on the edge somewhere in a discreet position knit and thicken in order to make a tab which will interfere with the other bodies but not change anything you have going on elsewhere.. Make sense? This part does seem to lend itself to moving the entire face without any issues.
Thanks heaps, worked perfect.
