hello evrybody , i have a surface piéce and i want to rebuild it as a volume piéce how can i do plz !!
Can you attach your *.sldprt file here?
Looks like a multibody part file.
You have to hide all solid parts and isolate the surface bodies belogs to individual plates and need to repair all surfaces to make solid
It's little bit tricky, need to spent some time to make it work
John, the problem is that i cant isolate the three plate i dont know why but if i delete one plate the three plate will be deleted together !!
Farouk, what John means by isolate, is hide the other bodies so that they aren't visually in your way.
To hide a body, right-click on it and select "Hide" in the Body panel of the context menu (you might have to hit the double chevron at the bottom of the menu to expand it and see all of your options)
From your screen capture, it appears you've imported a multi-body part from an exchange file format like Step or ACIS and that the import has a couple of errors.
There are tools built into SolidWorks for identifying and correcting import errors. The tools are designed to address one body at a time. To access them, right-click on an imported solid (what you've referred to as a volume) or surface and select, "Import Diagnostics" from the context menu.
At that point the Import Diagnostics property manager will display, listing any errors. Right-clicking on a listed error will give you options to correct it. There are also tools in that interface for attempting to globally heal imported bodies.
In some cases, you might have to modify the geometry by adding surface features like trims and fills and then use Knit or thicken to solidify the surfaces. In particular, Pro-E allows regions of zero thickness in a solid body but SolidWorks does not.
You should read the online help on Import Diagnostics before attempting to repair your model. Here's a link to the help topic.
John, it look very complicated but thanks anywhere i will try it !
Click here to attach your *.sldprt file.
i know but i think problem of size 49 Mo !
Find the bar at the bottom of your feature tree. (shown here dragged to top)
Grab it an roll up the feature tree so that all features turn gray and disappear from the graphics window.
Save the file in this rolled up state.
Now how big is it?
