Convert surface into volume

Recommended Posts

Hi , I'm using Solid.Inspire and after using polynurbs I obtain volumes and surfaces (don't know why) as shown in picture attachment -surfaces are red circled. 

Can I convert those surfaces into volumes in order to export in CAD ?

Thanks for answers

As you can see in the model browser, there are 2 surface parts (flat surface, instead of cube; nb. 6 and 6.2).

Since the mass is zero, they also have no thickness.

If the object has still all surfaces to build a enclosed volume, than you can try to "Boolean->Combine->Pick the part(s) in browser->Press "combine".

Otherwise you have to check it for open holes, close it and try Boolean.


Best Regards,
