I continue to get the error "cannot knit sheets together". I do not know what sheets it is referring to and/or how to fix the problem. Can anyone come up with a solution?
Is this part is for study or for manufacturing?
If it is for manufacturing, your part has issues with removing from the core and release from the cavity
The ends of the helical shape is open thru, and difficult to mold and remove from the mold.
If it is just for study, without modifying the part, the split will be as shown below
Need to select the parting line at the outer edge of the open end
Use shut-off command close the 2 open ends of the helical shape
Then use the tooling split to create core and cavity
Not know which surfaces you want to knit together, but I opened your part and took the two surfaces under "Cavity Surface Bodies" and "Core Surface Bodies".
That seemed like something you might have wanted to do....but I don't know for sure.
Anyway, it not only knitted the surfaces together, but I was also able to check the try to form solid box and it now there is a solid body.
Please let me know what you were trying to do.
Sorry for my response which is apparently way off base.
I don't use the mold package unfortunately, but rather create all of my own parting geometry as the geometry I deal with is not straight forward. With that said, if I understand a little more about what you are trying to accomplish, I may be able to provide some applicable advice
I am trying to construct a mold of the cylinder.
how is this? I made the parting split on the opening of the cylinder. When I tried to use the tooling split, I didn't know how to create cavity and core surfaces however.
That looks perfect. I need to actually create this part but it will be made of silicone which is flexible. The fact that it is silicone will make it easier to remove from the mold, right?
I still suggest to remove the 2 ends piercing thru the wall. That will give a clean part.
Ok sounds good. Thank you.
As John indicated your parting line is unknown, but would you not want to split along the length of the cylinder through the axis, using core pins for your holes that extend out of the outer wall?
Regardless, I'm not sure I am helping at all...
No that's good. How would I go about doing that?
It's hard to understand the way you wanted to create the parting line.
You picked the inner edge and don't think you can split there.
You could pick the outer edge of the cylinder at the open face
