      Hello, 


      If there is no hole in your surface geometry then please use Body Operations --> Sew command to create a solid body out of surface body. It will stitch all surfaces together. 


      Also use second option from top right corner as shown in your image to display edges by connectivity. The edges which are only connected to one face will have red color. You may need to create faces here to patch holes. 


      Hope this helps.

      Hello Abhay,


      I can take a look at your file. Please create a Workbench Project Archive .wbpz file and attach it to your post above.

      Hi Abhay,


      From the icons next to bodies in the geometry tree, it looks like these are solid bodies. Since it is imported in Frozen state, those bodies are shown transparent. To turn off transparency go to View >> uncheck box for 'Frozen Body Transparency'

      On additional note, you should be to operate on these bodies as normal. Except couple of DM operations which need bodies to be in active state, you should be able to use all other operations.

      Hello Abhay,


      I don't use email here, I just use this site.


      When the size of the project archive is greater than the 120 MB file size limit for attaching to posts, many students use the Google Drive feature of Gmail. If you use Gmail and attach a large file, it will create a link to the file on your Google Drive. You can post that link in your reply. If you don't use Gmail, there are similar features in a Microsoft mail account and there are free websites like Dropbox.


      Regards,


      Peter
