Hi there !
In order to make an internal structure in 3D Printing, I was wondering if it was possible to extract a closed surface, inside a solid. In input I would give a thickness dimension, and I would get all the surfaces, where the thickness gets over 15 mm.
That done, I would delete the inside of this (or those) closed surface(s) and replace it with either nothing, or an internal structure. I know it is possible to display this surface with the thickness analysis tool, but how to create the surface...i've been looking in vain...
If you have any idea, I would be most grateful !
Any idea ?
Did you use "Shell" command?
Okay, thanks for your help
Than there is no easy way. You have to split offset surfaces and join. In last step close this surface and boolean it under two body
I used the "shell" command, but the thickness if limited due to the complexity of the shape. It is proposed to deactivate "shell" and create the offset surface, what I do, but the result is long to sew/fill/heal...what I search would be a shell but with a rough offset, like in the GSO workbench.
I think You could try to create a product and then within that product create two parts.
Then split them and extract what you need from both sides
then join the surfaces in a new part
Let me know and if it was usefull my tip!!
Hvae a good day,
If I understand you well, I make a second part which is what I want to split, but how do I create this second part (-> I think I do the same but with an offset surface, but the result is long to sew/fill/heal...what I search would be a shell but with a rough offset, like in the GSO workbench.
