How to simplify this geometry that has loads of facets ?
I have a geometry that have imported with a lot of facets in solidworks , but I need to take out a simple geometry with simple lines but with less effort , shall you please tell me how to ? I did already some corrections in the stp file but you can check the igs file
Create a new extrude feature based on the import.
Select the face of the part to start your sketch and convert entity while this face is selected. This will give you a perimeter sketch that has all the facets that you want to get rid of .
Then on each faceted area, window all the facet segments and use the sketch command 'fit spline' to replace all the facets with a single approximate spline curve.
Once you're done with that, extrude up to the opposite face of the part, don't forget to un-check 'merge result'.
Finally, 'delete body' on the faceted body and you're left with the repaired part.
