Operation failed due to geometric condition?

By Jason Chen on 13 Aug 21:17 3 answers 0 comments

I get this error when trying to do a lofted cut. I attached a picture of the problem. Both circular profile sketches are on the exterior surfaces, so there is not reason this should fail because of too thin geometry.

    I unchecked "Merge tangent faces" and the lofted cut worked

    This is one of those not helpful errors that SolidWorks spits out occasionally. Usually it is because there is a zero-thickness geometry that is being generated from whatever you're trying to do. As you apparently figured out, you just have to experiment with the settings and try moving things around until it works. I know that's annoying, and not that helpful but unfortunately this is how it has to be.
