MySolidWork tutorial says there is a gap between faces. Are you able to see gap?
Sorry but yes, it's plain as day. The single color makes it almost invisible. Try to pick that area see what it does.
Problem is if you encounter these type of thing how do you decide which location is to repaired?
It should allow you an option to repair it through SWx or if you know surfacing there's repair methods in there. Not familiar with surfacing.
Erase the faulty surface. You can close it with loft or surface filler.
What criteria you used to locate faulty surface?
I wrote wrong. erase and recreate the surface you are indicating.
Before erase and recreate how to find out which surface needs repair.
Use Check Entity to find any open surfaces.
I couldn't find.
From the Results List you need to select something by clicking on it.
(Imagine there were 10 things listed. You wouldn't want EVERYTHNG highlighted at once!)
What happens if you select the Attempt to Heal All button?
In effect (this is just an example) the software is trying to tell you that 2 is not 2.0000000000000001
This is what tutorial is doing finally. Problem is if I couldn’t see any gap even after zoom in, how can I apply same procedure to other similar problems?

I couldn't understand this.
You don't understand that there is a difference between 2 and 2.000000000000001 as far as the software is concerned?
You might not be able to see .000000000000001 but the software can.
Geometry is defined in the background by mathematics. (brep - normally covered in a surfacing class)
If the boundaries between faces are not defined identically - then the software warns that might be an issue.
Doesn't matter if the difference is visually obvious to a human .1 or completely undiscoverable to a human .000000000000001, the computer sees it as a difference and flags the issue. In most cases it is fine for the software to Knit the boundaries together (Attempt to Heal All), but in some cases it could result in a significant change of geometry. (actual significance is defined by the designer and purpose of the geometry)
Okay I can understand what you say. Even tutorial says "edges come together".
From your explanation I can come to a conclusion that no need to find out the faces. Just to click “Attempt to Heal All” to repair all faces.
Gaps are easily found using the tools in Solidworks that find them for you. If you want to "see" them easier...switch to HLV display instead of Shaded.
Where can you see gap for this surface?
Any gaps between surfaces are easily seen in HLV because the edges with gaps show as a different color.
Viewing in HLV makes finding the gaps very easy. The blueish edges are not "knitted" together.
Import diagnostics also makes it easy to find the gaps. On this part, it also was able to automatically fix the problem.
I can only see a change in face number. Before healing it was Face<1> after healing it has become Face<4>. Blue line still exist.
Hey Maha,.. using Check.. it shows.. but for quick visual,.. the blue model color somewhat hides the default open surface edge lite blue color.. but if you change model color to grey or hidden line.. the lite blue edge is more easy to see.
It does not come.
(select) mouse click on - "Open surface (1)"
