Error mesh has no volume elements

Postby ragim_w3 » Thu Oct 18, 2018 3:38 pm

Can someone explain why I get this error please. The object was created in Blender without a thickness and exported as stl. I thought that when FreeCAD made it solid that it is no longer a shell. I have made a simpler Blender object by exactly the same procedure and it worked fine without the need for me to add an arbitrary thickness ( meaning the mesh had volume elements and I could process the FEM).
