Tutoriel SolidWorks : Diagnostics d'importation (4) - Conversion des tôles [VIDEO]

Article by Alin Vargatu, CSWE updated December 9, 2013


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

After we demonstrated the power of the Import Diagnostics tool for healing topological errors in imported geometry, today we will consider a completely different case study; a sheet metal part that, when imported, will generate topological errors wherever faces are superimposed on each other. This type of error can be revealed by the Import Diagnostics tool, but cannot be healed automatically.

In order to solve the topological problems and convert the imported geometry into a SolidWorks Sheet Metal part, we will use various techniques you can learn in the Surface Modeling and Sheet Metal courses, including:

  • copy surface
  • convert a surface body into a solid body
  • convert a solid body to sheet metal
  • find the minimum radius of curvature of given face
  • delete and patch faces
  • create hems
