Create outer surface mesh from SOLID but still keep SOLID elements

Recommended Posts



I can create outer surface mesh of tetra solid by below commands.

But may I know how to create outer surface mesh without delete solid mesh because I afraid that when I create tetra mesh again, it may be not same the previous result.

There are multiple ways to do it. This one i feel is one of the straight forward ways. Please do the following steps. 


1. Select all the faces . 

2. Go to Body > Create > From Faces > Duplicate and  make non shared faces 

3. Select Ok 

This will create tri elements of the outer surfaces.
