Free edges

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

 

I have free edges in my model as shown in the image! It is creating a problem in the mesh generation. Is there anyway I can equivalence the free edges with the adjacent surface?

Hi,

 

please use the Geom>edge edit>replace, specify proper tolerance and zoom in sufficiently to pick both overlapping edges. This can also be done with toggle (in the same panel), but does not provide the same control.

Hi Ivan,

There is only one edge! Replace- When I select edge on the two opposite faces, it says different edges must be specified. I have tried toggle and suppress as well, it does not seem to work!

you should first imprint the honeycomb free edges on the face plates using geom>surface edit>trim with lines>with lines

and then perform replace edge to get manifold and shared edges:

Here is the edited model, however it is just a strart and far from perfect

Hello vishruthdilip ,

 

You can removw all those free edges in one go. Follow the below steps :

 

Goem -> Surface_Edit -> trim with surfs/planes ->  self intersecting surfs

 

Select all the surfaces which you want  and click on trim.

 

Magic is completed.

 

Hope it helped.

 

 

Regards,

Brahmadev.

Hello,

 

I got the next problem: There are some free edges (in red) in the inner part of geometry which generate trouble when meshing. 

I've tried Toggle edge, but it doesnt' work right. Could any one help me to solve this problem?

 

 

Thanks a lot,

Julio

I'm really grateful for the early and helpful answers you all gave me.

I could finally fix the problem with Geom> surface edit> trim with surfs/planes> self intersecting surfs (select the surfaces) > trim

This "Geom>edge edit>replace" didn't work as the message "Couldn't stitch to the gap" was shown, and the gap was too big. Tutorial was helpful, and i will keep it.

I had also tried  geometry > surface edit > extend, but when extended i was loosing information about the edges (instead of a yellow line, I was obtaining a grey line).

 

Here I show you the model fixed. Thanks again.
