I imported an STL file to spaceclaim in order to cut it and eventually to print it. I manged to convert the facet into patch body by Auto skin. The model now looks like solid but I'm not sure about it. I want to make it solid, to cut it and then save it again as an STL, but I cant do any of this now. Does anyone know how to make it solid so I can edit it?January 27, 2022 at 2:13 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberIt looks like a solid to me. If you create a Plane that passes through the solid and use Split Body, do you get two solids?
What version of ANSYS are you using? If you are using the free ANSYS Student 2021 R2, you can't File, Save As to an STL file.
January 27, 2022 at 3:23 pmavitalmicSubscriberFor some reason I cant cut using a plane...
I use ANSYS Student 2021 R1- I cant save as an STL with it? So what can I do?
January 27, 2022 at 6:00 pmpeteroznewmanSubscriberIf you have access to an ANSYS Research license, such as in a University lab, then you can open your SpaceClaim document and do a File Save As STL on that computer. If you don't have access, then use a different piece of software to edit the STL file.
If you attach the .scdoc file (or put it in a .7z or .rar archive), I can take a look at why you can't cut.
