    Delete face problem - edges for blending

    Rich Turner

      im fairly new to the world of deleting faces

      only been using this wonderful feature for 3 or 4 months

      ive just started coming across this problem and i cant seem to find a answer

      i create my model, use the delete face option 7 or 8 times and finish

      come back change a seemingly unrelated feature up-tree from the delete face feature

      all of a sudden my delete face feature stops working

      apparently i need to "select edges for blending"

      see attached pic


      how do i select edges for blending? it only lets me select faces?

      thanks in advance

          Sometimes the error messages seem to be chosen at random.


          I've had features (not just Delete Face) come up with errors where all I had to do was just select the green arrow and the error goes away. At other times I have had to select some missing faces or edges. At other times I have had to select all of the faces or edges over again. At other times I have had to delete the feature and insert it again. And sometimes I just had to give up and find another way to make it work.


          I would be nervous about a model that had 7 or 8 Delete Faces. That seems like an indication that you may not be building the features correctly in the first case. Having said that, there are models where I should have been able to do an Extrude to a Body or a Surface, for example, but it wouldn't work, so I had to use another sort of Extrude followed by Delete Face on the pieces left sticking out. (Although I have also had cased where I could Cut with the Surface that it wouldn't Extrude to!)
