I'm trying to shell this body with no success.
I did manage to do that before I changed the geometry a bit. Can't figure out why it wont work now.
Would appreciate you taking a look at it.
Thanks a lot!
Edit your extrude-cut10 sketch & expand it to cover more of your part & extrude down to a vertex at lowest point. That's how I cleaned the top surface shown in Nayshil's image with the small circles.
With the area in the large circle, just do a delete & patch face of the 7 small faces then it should shell no problem.
You need to edit the model to eliminate those small faces in the model...these cause a problem for the shell feature...i've attached image. I also have model with succesfull shell feature after edits but it's in 2014 format. Your model was older.
Hi, thanks for the answer.
could you explain how you ellegently eliminate these faces? using a fillet didn't work. Is there a practical way to "smoothen" them out to single faces?
I used delete face feature with the option "Delete and Patch" for each circled area shown in the image...it works quite well.
