It appears to me that I'm having an accuracy / level of precision based problem for a part I designed which is to be imported
into ICEM for meshing.
When viewed in solidworks, the part seems to be ok, although quite jagged in areas. Could this be because
the part itself is very small? . The main problem is at the location of the join between the two tubes.
When imported into ICEM, the part is translated perfectly except for the area of the join, where the curves
and surfaces unable to be imported correctly, and come out slightly disconnected, as seen in the images below. I have tried
several different import file types to see if this is the problem, and have still had no luck (eg STEP, IGES, parasolid, STL).
As you can see, the curves do not connect properly, and there is a strange small rectangular surface. Does anyone
have any idea what is causing these problems?
