Hi, please tell me the techniques of converting non-manifolds to manifolds.
not for the specific metal or plastic, i need some techniques by which i can implement it.
I am solid works trainee developer, i have to complete one project, in that
I am trying to develop an algorithm of, converting a non-manifold solid body to manifold solid body by importing any type of file ,like CATPart, IFC,Step etc..
I am not aware about what type of metal being used.
As there is one technique of meshing of surface bodies,i.e. making triangulation of surfaces then remove non-manifold edges and vertices from that surface and again form a solid body from surfaces.
If you have any idea about it, please let me know.
please post some examples
I think you're using language that makes sense to you but does not necessarily apply to all
There is one Matchmaker algorithm it tells us ,
To import the file in solid works, first we have to read the topological data,but if the given body is non-manifold SW cannot support it.
For this functionality, we can do the faceting of original body then apply algorithm as below.
The original model had two non-manifold edges and three non-manifold vertices. The adjacency assignment
performed by Matchmaker is illustrated (left) by bending edges, so as to show the pairing of adjacent triangles. The blue
vertex is a manifold vertex, because it has a single cycle of incident faces and edges. The red vertex (in front) is a nonmanifold
vertex. It will be replicated by Matchmaker to produce a manifold topology, illustrated on the right.
