Please inform me of how to use the function of repair the surface

Postby Shinichi Sakabe » Mon Apr 16, 2018 8:41 am

Dear everyone, I use the Free CAD version 16.0 in windows 7 32bits.

Now I downloaded the precious stl model and import it to FreeCAD. And I analyzed the surface in order to make the mesh in order to analyze it

by using FEA. But now I could not repair the surface of the model by using analyze and repair on mesh work brunch.

If anyone knows how to do it, please contact me as soon as possible.

My E-mail address: shinichi_sakabe@usjc.co.jp

Thanks.

In Adition to Jee-Bees comments.

- for analysing your geometry with the tools of mesh wb you need a mesh wb mesh object.
- for making an FEA analysis you need a Part geometry
- you can convert between mesh wb mesh and Part WB geometry in both directions.

- If you would like any help you should give more informations what exactly did not work for you. Write down step by step what you did and where you run into trouble.
