Hi, it is possible to snip off an area from a stl model, so that only the nearest encountered faces are snipped? I would like to eliminate a zone where there is a problem, but when I use the snip command it cuts through the whole model (as if it was an extrusion). I attach a video and the stl model I am using.
Solved! Go to Solution.
yes, this is what I also did, but when I close the hole with Fill Hole command the result is maybe worse than the starting situation. I tried also with Smooth, the preview seems good but then it doesn't do it.
I downloaded th emodel with the circle and the extrude in it. That was a good start. I made the circle a little bit bigger (3mm) and exited the extrude to be a little bit deeper because you missed some of the bad facets.
I converted back to NX facted and used fill hole with the refined method. This produced a good output.
Normally the snip command should have worked on this problem but the 'near facets' option did not seem to produce the boundary as exptected.
Thank you, this is how I will proceed then.
I tried also with the Smooth command, drawing the boundary of the bad area correct, but it didnt do anything.
