Stitching surfaces with attached part in Solid Edge

Experimenter
Experimenter

I need to stitch two surfaces one at 90 deg to the other. I have attached the file with sample surfaces. Is there some sort of trick to getting something as simple as this stitched. I have tried extending the surfaces, trimming the surfaces but nothing seems to work. I saw a similar post but it deosn't seem to have been answered sufficiently. Can someone take a look at the model and suggest a workaround. I am new to working with surfaces.

 

regards

Nick

Hi @NickJB

 

 

 

I must ask what Your final goal is.

 

The two surfaces at the moment to not share any common edge so they can not be stitched together anyway.

 

Should the vertical surface also be trimmed back to the horicontal one?

Hi @NickJB

 

 

 

what I asked before is something like this:

But as I said, let us know what Your intend is, then I think we can give better advices how to do.

Hi Wolfgang

 

Thanks for your reply.  I am trying to use surfaces to model a vertical curved surface with a number of horizontal stiffened flat plates down the height of the curved surface. Ultimately I am going to use the surfaces in the Solid Edge Simulation. 

 

See attached image.

Hi @NickJB

 

 

 

in this case You simply should create the surfaces but there is no need for a stitching.

They can reside as separate surfaces.

Stitch means to have common edges for both partners

Hi Wolfgang

 

Thanks for clarifying that.

 

I receive a Disjoint Body Error in the simulation telling me that there are disjointed bodies which must be removed to ensure accurate analysis. I assumed it was because the surfaces needed to be stitched.

Hi Nick,

 

in Simulation, you have a couple of choices to overcome this.

Look at either "glue jopints" or "united body" commands. these shoul join the surfaces together.

No Problem. Just a shame my spelling/typing isn't better!
