Is it possible to use meshing toolbox features to edit a composite surface or curve? I am not able to currently i.e. I can't split a joined curve or surface.
In the above example, I can't edit any of the composite surfaces. If it can't be in Femap,any tips on how I can go about editing a surface which has been joined using the above tools?
I try to avoid the use of COMBINED/COMPOSITE CURVES commads, this should be the last resourse, because as you have experienced the geometry gets untouchable. I suggest to use DELETE command and return to initial state and use the Parasolid commands to edit & simplify the geometry.
I usually try to avoid composite curves/surfaces, but for very complex contoured surfaces and especially if you don't have the CAD source model, then I think the composite curves/surfaces becomes a powerful utility. It seems like the downside is that Geometry becomes uneditable further.
Can u please elaborate on what Parasolid commands are available in Femap if possible?
By genuine Parasolid I means all commands under MODIFY menu or under GEOMETRY menu. If fails then I use the commands under MESHING TOOLBOX.
post your model and I will take a look to it.
