I have an imported surface model that I can't get to become a solid model.
I tried Import Diagnostics first with no luck.
There are intersecting faces that need to be deleted and rebuilt.
What is the native software? I am asking because there are some major geometry errors that most likely are due to the precision of the data from the originating system. You can ask them to adjust the model/export settings in the originating system to the maximum precision and send you a new model.
Troy and Alin,
Thanks for both reply's and you were both kind of right. We did try getting rid of the intersecting faces and surfaces with great difficulty. This led us to realize that the data was just not up to par. We had them re export with more precision and that did the trick. I believe it originated in ProE.
Brett, IGES and STEP files are plain text files that can be opened in Windows Notepad. In the header info will be info on where the file originated.
