Why can't these surfaces be made into a solid?


#1

It’s driving me crazy. The surfaces come from Maya and I’ve stitched and rebuilt them and gone over CV pairs at the the edges over and over and… I must be missing something. Any insights please?

They seem to Join up into a solid here? Whether I’d actually recommend that surface structure is another matter.


#3

No Kidding? I’ve been selecting the whole thing and trying Solid -> Create Solid. Is that what you’re doing?


#4

No, just the Join command. CreateSolid is a specialized command for where you have a bunch of surfaces that intersect each other to enclose a volume but need to be trimmed off to actually form a solid. For your normal “stitching” up of surfaces that are already within tolerance, that’s Join.

Awesome! Thanks so much!
