I've got a boat hull that I'm working on, and I created the model by using surface lofts. I used surface fills to close it in completely, and was able to get the whole thing to knit together successfully, if I dont try to create a solid model. However, if I check the box to attempt to create a solid model, it says it fails to knit surfaces.
I need the final part to be a solid model, and unfortunately I have very little surfacing experience. Most of what I have now is just from a large amount of trial and error.
I've attached a part file, iges & step file, in the hopes someone cna help. The file was created in SW2013.
Bad Surfacing. Also Bad luck I have SW 2012. Thanks to IGES. There are some surface gaps you need to fill. I had fixed the IGES file somehow. You can try to fix the SLDPRT yourself after checking what I have done.
After fixing all you need to do is Knitting the surface & it will create the solid you want.

Your Welcome Adam. Glad to know that it helped. Surfacing skills are little difficult to develop. I find it hard to model but easier to troubleshoot problem.
Did you fixed that in SW2013 file?
Thank you Sudhir. I'm not surprised in the slightest that the issues stem from how i modeled the part. Like I said originally, my surfacing skills are almost non-existant, so I figured it was my own doing.
No, I havent had a chance to try it yet. Hoping to have the time this evening to work on it.
