Import Diagnostics - 17 Faulty Faces

Import Diagnostics – 17 Faulty Faces

This is the third in a series of articles focused on troubleshooting and healing topological errors from geometry imported in SolidWorks.

As we discovered in the second article of this series, the Import Diagnostics is a good tool for troubleshooting topological errors. It can also be used for fixing most of them automatically, or semi-automatically (as shown in the first article).

I was searching for a great case study of a model with a lot of imported geometry errors that could be healed completely inside the Import Diagnostics dialog box. Fortunately David Bernick posted an excellent example on the SolidWorks Forum.

Watch this video in order to fully appreciate the power of the Import Diagnostics tool:
