I want to retain some surfaces which were converted to solid for future designing or as a reference.
I see the entire surfaces folder is disappeared!!!!!
Is there a way to do it? Or should I convert on more surface?
their is multiple ways to get surface from solid,
-select knit surface Command, then select faces you want to convert to surfaces.
-select offset surface Command, then select the faces you need , and make it offset with zero.
(this two techniques will generate new surfaces from selected faces)
-or if you want to convert all the solid body to surface , just use delete face Command , and select any simple face you can re create it easily later on , or unwanted face ,
make sure you select delete option. but this way will convert solid to surface.
i hope i had answer your question.
Thanks for replying.
Till now I'm following the same methods. But it will increase the feature tree and also lengthy and cumbersome.
My question is isn't there an option in SW to retain the surfaces used to convert them into solids?
(Just like some direct step)
I do this all the time with copy bodies command. 2014 SOLIDWORKS Help - Move/Copy Body PropertyManager
Thanks for the reply.
Looks helpful. But isn't there a direct way?
Have you done it, tried it ? Pretty direct to me.
You can also use the approaches Ahmed Lasheen suggested.
