How to merge faces in Solid Edge

By Marta Bjornsdottir on 03 Apr 20:32 1 answer 2780 views 1 comment

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.

Thanks!
Marta

    Marta,
    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.
