Add edges to faceted body in SpaceClaim or Mechanical

      Is there a way to add edges to an imported geometry in either SpaceClaim or Mechanical? I need to add an edge to the very end of my geometry so that I can add fixed supports in Mechanical. Right now my entire geometry is one Face so when I go to add a fixed support it adds it to the entire geometry, but I only want the ends fixed, not the entire geometry. I have attached a screenshot of the end of my geometry in Mechanical.


       


      Thanks!

      In SpaceClaim, if that shows up as a Faceted body, then right click on the body in the Outline and choose Convert so that it becomes a surface.

      I was able to open it as a surface but now I have hundreds of edges along the outside. Is there a way to combine them into one edge? Below is a screenshot.



      Thanks!

      Only converting to surface will not give you a single edge. You may need to recreate it. 


      please check following.

      I was able to add edges by drawing a circle on the ends.
