How to make solid (Open polysurface to solid) in rhino


#1

How can I make solid (Open polysurface to solid) in rhino. Attached my Rhino file.

The Size of this object is quite huge… 13~14meters long?

Perhaps you can lower the tolerance of the file itself.

Then explode and join to get both object as closed polysurface then use boolean.

Hi there,
I exploded the object twice, since it was a block already and then used BooleanUnion - Command line says: BooleanUnion failed.

If you do showedges, you can see that
couple of edge are out naked, and out of tolerance.

By going to File->Properties->Units

The tolerance set on the file is in mm and 0.0001units. which seems to be overspec for the size of the object.

I changed model units to meter and set scale pop-up yes.

Explode the part to surface then join all together again and it should close.
same for other part.
Attached is the file after closing surface.

Then boolean union.

Thank you for your replies. Still I am getting one error in circular portion.
Can anyone help?

Yes its offshore wind mill platform. 14m long.

Sorry about the rhino version…
Currently using my phone so can’t convert at the moment.

I guess using matchsrf in the open edge may help, though surface might change a bit.
May need to explode first then join to get all edges connected.

I solved it myself. Thank you for your help.
