simulation of bubble dynamics

    • pratsat1

      Hey guys, I've been trying to build a bubble surface with ions attached to it, but the bodies keep getting unified into one body. Id there way to separate them? The bodies are spheres of one size, in contact with a larger sphere and with at least three other spheres at the same time. The error it's giving me is the non-manifold geometry error, so how do I make it manifold geometry?

      Hey pratsat,

      I assume you are talking about creating spheres in SpaceClaim.

      Did you click the No Merge button before you created the second, third, and Nth sphere?

      You could also create a New Component for each sphere.

      Non manifold is often flagged where you have objects contacting at a point or thin edge. You probably need to overlap the spheres slightly, and then do some geometry manipulation to form the connections.
