We have offseted the following surface from a 3D imported model. We have failed to Thicken this geometry. Can you help us?
You are more likely to get a response if you state what version of SolidWorks you are using.
You are more likely to get a response if you do not compress as *.rar.
I am using solidworks 2013. Here i will uploaded .prt file.
Are you just trying to thicken inside or making a solid insert like a button?
I want to thicken just by 2mm or 3mm. That is it!!!
It is unclear to me which side of the surface you want to thicken. Towards the solid body or away from the imported solid body?
Thank u J. Mather for ur sincer follow up. I need it to be away from the surface.
This STEP file should give you some ideas where to start looking for problems in the geometry. (turn on edge visibility)
Hello J. Mather,
I opened the thicken .step file u sent me, it has around three big open areas. I think if u send me the .STL file it will help me a lot.
Thank u very much
I think this is the problem area.
If that profile is not so critical, you can modify this area and try again
It is not that much critical area. I need it to run few simulation on this model. That is why i need it to be thicken. If u have time help us by thickening with some modification.
See if this will work for you. Tom
Dear Tom Dunn,
Thank u very much for ur healp. After u gave me the result i was busy of running other simulation works on the part which was thickened. U have done great JOB for me!!!
God bless u!!!
