Is it possible to merge faces on an imported solid model in solid edge ?
I need to clean up the faces before I import the model into a Finite Element software because all these irregular faces become problematic when I mesh.
Is it possible to have the whole body as one face ?
I have attached a figure.
Almost all FEA software convert the perfectly good solids into a mash. See if you can import what you have as bed as it is into the FEA. Most FEA have very good tools for refining the model or deleting unnecessary detail.
I am using Solid edge ST7 ,i created a model similiar to the above image ,i need to analyse it using solid edge simulation tool bar how can clean up the faces, because me too facing the same Problem during Meshing process. I don"t have any specific software for FEA.
