In SpaceClaim, you would select the face and type Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V to copy the face and paste a surface. Then you could delete the solid.

Hi Peter. Not for a closed surface like a sphere. It simply pastes another 3D body even if you only have 1 Face selected. I tried in both Spaceclaim and Discovery.

I see you are correct. A workaround is to create a plane to split the sphere into two hemispheres, then Detach All will work and you will end up with 2 domes and two circular flats. Delete the circular flats then use the Share button on the Workbench tab. Mechanical will mesh the spherical surface without an issue.

True. Thanks for the workaround. Share Topology would work. I guess there is a deep reason in the Geometry algorithms (that I don't understand) why closed surfaces can't exist without automatically converting to a 3D Solid. Otherwise, it's a bit annoying that you need to bring in a multi-body part to the solver for this to work. But tolerable. Thanks and have a great weekend.
