Hi

 

I have a created a enclosed surfaces and when these surfaces are stiched togeather it is not converting to solid. 

 

I found a solution in http://www.eng-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=318351 and the solution is

 

Take what you have done and re-apply the stitch command. Then select "stitch" from the feature tree, right click and select "attach", then select "add".  This will give you a solid.

 

But it is not working for me, I didnt find ADD after the attach operation.

 

Any help...

From memory ,the 'add' command will only appear in synchronous mode so if you're in ordered you won't see it. Otherwise, are you 100% sure your surfaces are all stiched together with no holes?

 

Maybe upload your file so we can test?

@Raj_I-value, I'm on ST7 so can't try it for you, but maybe someone else will.

 

However, instead of seeing 'Add or Substract', are you getting a red arrow on screen asking you to select the direction to attach? If so, I think your sticked surfaces aren't fully enclosed.

Even when working from memory, you are spot on Alex.

There indeed is one - staring right in to eyes.

  

I see a circular opening on the surface which needs to be closed off.

Used a bounded surface and stitched the two without problems.

 

Then right-click on the Stitch in the PathFinder to select 'Attach' when Solid Edge asks the question.

Select 'Add'.

Is there any way to find the unstiched surface automatically

This command is available under the Stitched command.

I purposely changed the shading to wireframe so that all open edges that are highlighted can be seen.

  

@Raj_I-value And since this is another question, I'd insist you mark it as accepted solution as well if it answers your query.

This trend has to sent in.
