Import a complicate surface, want to thicken 3mm, have issue, any comment? thanks
In SW 2020 you can now do this but......
it will ask you if you want to delete the failing faces the it build the new surface, which means you have trim, extend and patch, so might get you anywhere from 50-80%.
you'll see the 3 new surface it make.
Thanks for your advice, now using SW 2019, no this function
Which thicken you want? Side 1, Side2 or Both sides
Side 1, thanks
What side? inside or outside
There are surfaces which radius are smaller than 3mm. Solidworks can't find solution for many of this surfaces, since it's something you have to decide. They'd fold themshelves.
I've individually offseted internally 3mm, only those group of faces that can be offsetted.
In blue the original surface, you'll have to resolve individually each transition.
Hence why I said use SW2020 to help minimize the PAIN!!!
