Convert to Solid body

[ Edited ]

Hi Edge users ..
I downloaded the STEP file and opened it.
Opened as a surface body.
I want to make this solid.
Using all the methods I know, this shape could not be converted to a solid.
I am looking for a way to easily convert.
Help me ^^

 

Version : ST9

 

Is there a way to easily identify the wrong part?
I would appreciate if you can let me know where you can convert to solid.

if You run the "Show Open Surfaces" command this shows You the big hole in Your surface body.

 

Repair it and YOu will succedd.

Re: Convert to Solid body

Hello,

 

you first have to look where to stitch the surface.

Here you have to first delete a plain then create a surface and stitch.

Hi Tushar And wziegle
I watched the video well ..
I tried similar but it did not work.
This method seems to consistently vary depending on how the surface body is opened.

This way, I would like to have to touch each other with craftsmanship.
Thank you for answer.

Hi @Tushar

 

 

 

thanks for answering so fast.

This exactly is what I also did.

 

Optimize, Search for "Non-Closed-Surfaces", Delete/Repair, Stitch, Convert

 

Good Job!

Hi @Hclee

 

 

there always should be Your first step to run the "Optimize Geometry" when opening an imported part.

 

This saves a lot!

 

 

Very surprising here is, that the geometric problem only occurs on one side while the other (symmetric) is OK)

Here the better question also is: "Wherefrom is this geoemtry coming?"

Which software are they using and can You get a different file format?

 

Maybe the export of the geometry went wrong, so taht any import will automatically be unable to do it successfull

That is very unfortunate.

This is a much standard procedure for bad surface bodies.

Thanks Wolfgang @hawcad for confirming that you'd follow the same process and that you were able to repair the part. Else it would have been so much bandwidth gone waste.
