Hello, I'm working through the "Assembly Clearance" course in the Siemens "Learning Advantage" site and am not sure why something was done as it is. When analyzing the interference between parts, a solid feature is generated to show the interference between parts. Why is the interference between parts created as a solid feature? What's the benefit of having that solid? Is there a way that the solid would be used to actually fix the interference? Thanks
Subtract the interference solid from the part = no more interference. I've actually done this on occasion when the interference was small, time was tight, and the part was only being used for a 3d test print.
When fixing the interference for real, I'll sometimes keep the interference solid there for reference while I edit the part to eliminate the interference.
